Duke Nukem actor hints at future for DNF

"Don't be disappointed."

Duke Nukem voice actor Jon St. John has hinted that there may be a future for Duke Nukem Forever - by saying nothing at all. St. John implied that he was bound to silence because something is still afoot.

"Let me go ahead and tell you right now that I'm not allowed to talk about Duke Nukem Forever," St. John said when asked about it during a panel at the Music and Games Festival in Virgina last weekend, as reported (with video) by Pixel Enemy.

When the crowd groaned in disappointment, he teased: "No, no, don't be disappointed, read between the lines… why am I not allowed to talk about it?"

Duke Nukem Forever was first announced in 1997, and still refuses to die despite funding problems at developer 3D Realms that led to the redundancy of the entire development team, and a legal dispute with publisher Take-Two.

Most recently, something called Duke Nukem D-Day made a mysterious appearance on Facebook, although this may be an unconnected Duke project.
