yeah, that game has been coming soon since 97. Seriously, it won awards for being the most consistant vaporware ever.

Bummer for the folks at 3-d who got fired, but dang.

I didn't realize there was still anyone who thought this was actually coming out.

Only a matter of time.

3DRealms was infamous for incompetence.

i first got into the gaming industry in january 97. it's hard to believe that this charade has spanned my whole career, even a three-year period where i went off and made films, after which i came back to the industry.

I played that game. :) Forever is never final; let's see what happens ten years from now. Aerosmith is still touring, so...

I never understood...

Why do we need another Duke Nukem game?

We all know Duke Nukem 3d kicked total ASS and was perfect.

I think someone should tell the employment opportunities page on the 3d-realms website they're not hiring anymore.

Just a thought, really.

You know what I would love to see?

Someone who can actually release a GODDAMN GAME ON TIME get Duke out there...

The publishing rights still exist, afterall.

I hate that every anticipated game gets pushed back over and over until its like a year late.

Well, I never preorder. In fact I often wait until the first 3 or 4 patches are in the game before I buy it.

In online games this sometimes gives you a cheap spurt of superiority as you use your first learning curve's exploratory innovations to beat people who are still trying to unlearn some buggy moment early in the game's evolution.

And the lawsuits start!


Take-Two Interactive has reportedly sued Apogee Software's 3D Realms over the company's failure to develop "Duke Nukem Forever." According to Take-Two, Apogee breached a mutual agreement which stipulated the production and design of a new Duke Nukem sequel.

Zero Punctuation (http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/748-Duke-Nukem-Forever) had a thing or two to say about Duke Nukem Forever as well- or at least, what he imagined a game that long in development would be like.

Apparently the game refuses to die.

“I didn’t want the dream to die,” Pitchford says. So he bought the rights to Duke for an undisclosed amount, then proposed to the publisher that the lawsuits be dropped and Gearbox be allowed to finish the game.
