    A very reliable source close to Duke Nukem Forever developer 3D Realms today confirmed to Shacknews that the development studio has been shut down.

    The closure came about as a result of funding issues, our source explained, with the shut down said to affect both 3D Realms and the recently resurrected Apogee. Employees of both entities have already been let go.

    I always suspected it would be the best game ever or the worst game ever, not that it would just never be. They should just leak it as is on the net if the news is true.

    No. NOOOOOOOooOOOOO

    We waited all this time! It's like Jesus Christ speaking over the intercom to Christian fundamentalists saying "oh sorry guys, I'm not coming back after all"

    I think DB has been saying what many people have been thinking, albeit in his usual 'bombastic' style :p

    Heh, what are the odds some other development studio picks up the rights for Duke a few years down the line, and this whole cycle repeats.

    Let's hope the architects of this sorry episode never work again.

    So.

    You want all the artists, programmers, designers who must have come and gone over the years to work at 3D Realms on a IP that looks interesting to never work again.

    Nice.

    "architects of this sorry episode"

    Do you read? You should, it helps on a forum.

    I'm sure there were a few more forces at work than just the incompetence of a few people Sam_spade. your comment seems overly harsh. I personally just hope their children are born ginger

    by the way, is Sam Spade the character from the Maltese Falcom?

    If i could chose who got to pick up the IP, I'd go for Rockstar. I think they could really make something of aud Nukem.
