    Mebbe it's just a ploy...

    Mebbe they want to get people all annoyed and then BAM, they release DN:F

    I'm hoping this is the plan :/

    If not, it would be nice if they released all the work they did so far for people to play around with.

    No more 3D Realms or Apogee

    "3D Realms was founded in 1987 by Scott Miller and George Broussard, and was best known for its Duke Nukem series of shooters starring the titular, bubblegum-lacking hero. The studio had infamously been working on Duke Nukem Forever, the next flagship franchise entry, for the past 13 years".

    Re: RIP Duke Nukem Forever

    Wow, I can't help but think everyone is going to think this was an inevitability... it's a huge shame though as I would have killed for another Duke Nukem! I reckon they should release all the last builds of the several versions they did for their fans haha. I know during those 13 years they jumped through like 43240 game engines and different attempts, so that would be pretty fun lol!

    What's sad though is that this version that they were working on now looked like the one that could have been actually finished and released!

    Re: RIP Duke Nukem Forever

    Now hopefully they could sell off the IP to Duke and maybe, just maybe, lets say within the next 100 years we may see a DN:F xD

    Shame to see them go though.

    they were only making a game, not going to Mars :/ they have been on the gravy train for 12 years - and now its been killed off, rather than releasing something that couldn't live upto expectations they can make a perfect getaway! worked out very nicely for them

    Re: RIP Duke Nukem Forever

    I reckon the IP will get bought up - it's a valuable franchise despite the ridicule.

    I could be wrong, but then Thief is coming back from the dead now..
