In addition to luckybob's comments, whoever buys the INDY also has the anonymity, ergo they can release the source without fear of reprisal (small though that may be, it isn't insignificant). The source is worth nothing because it's someone else's property. The hardware is worth a mediocre amount. The combination is the golden egg. Read between the lines, folks.
Or they might not, because reasons. They can resurface in 10-20 years and sell it for even more or just keep it forever for their own personal amusement or whatever. It's been known to happen before with many games. Example: There was an alpha version of Conker's Bad Fur Day floating around, reportedly from a very early point in production (when the game was still cutesy and all). Some guy bought it, kept it for years without releasing anything and eventually... he died. It's been a few years since that's happened and I don't think we'll ever see that now.
It's all down to luck at this point.
