3D Realms closed

The game studio of the famous Duke Nukem games has closed down after delaying the release of "Duke Nukem Forever" for 12 years, due to the lack of funding.

The game publisher, Take-Two Interactive states they still have the publishing rights but do not fund the development of the game.

This is the kinda thing that makes me want to transition over to making movies fulltime.
And I guess that's kinda what I'm doing... so yeah...

So it ended up being Duke Nukem Fornever anyway. Not something I'll miss, but it's still a bit sad. I was confident that it would actually be released some day.

I actually think it's more likely now. TakeTwo own the rights to the game and the franchise will be sold to someone else. With the name in someone else name I am confident it will (eventually) be finished.

At the very least Duke Nukem is too big of an old franchise to let die. Mark my words, there will be a future Duke Nukem game.

Some footage of Duke Nukem Forever has been released: linky.
