Does Ubisoft really lost the Source code of H3: The Shadow of Death?

So they just remastered The Restoration of Erathia not The Shadow of Death and Armageddon's Blade?

I remember reading somewhere that source code is a lot more elusive than people think. IIRC that is one of the main problems with the No One Lives Forever franchise; in addition to the legal issues (there's a movie studio and two game publishers involved), no one is really sure where the source code is. If someone loses or steals something a now-defunct studio once made, it's pretty much gone forever.
