Default 3D Realms' alive and well except...

...Duke Nukem Forever development team is gone. 10 pages long interview with Scott Miller, founder of 3d Realms at Gamasutra.

The best part is, Rise of the Triad's getting a reboot!

Quote:
I've read that 3D Realms is closing. Is that true?

SM: No, 3D Realms is not closing. The internal development is no longer a part of this business, though.

It seems like the whole blog world exploded talking about Duke Nukem Forever stopping production.

SM: There's a lawsuit around this, so I really can't get into any details on that.

I'm just worried about the future of 3D Realms.

SM: Our future is fine. We have, I think at last count, 11 or 12 projects in the works. One of them is coming out next week. Another one is coming out in about six weeks. Both of those are on the iPhone. We have some major games in production still. So we're fine. That's not an issue at all.

So did you just lay off the development staff for Duke Nukem Forever? Is that what happened?

SM: Right.

So you're still there, and you're still technically Apogee under the hood.

SM: There's actually another company now going by the name of Apogee. About a year ago, we licensed the Apogee name to some other business people -- one of them had actually worked here several years before. They're reviving the Apogee label, the Apogee name, and they're doing a Duke Nukem Trilogy of games on the DS and PSP. They're also going to reboot the Rise of the Triad franchise, plus they have some other original titles that they're going to be doing.

I'm not sure I'd want Duke Nukem now anyways. Unless it was just the ultimate FPS amazing nothing else could touch it....

It would be such a let down after what, 15 years of hype and waiting? For the game to finally come out and just completely suck would be one of the biggest let downs in PC gaming imho. I think I'd much rather just remember Duke for what it was and the impact it had on PC gaming and move on....like we already have.

I'm glad Duke will finally(?) be left to rest.

Now, this ROTT reboot I'm hearing about...WTF? Let's come up with some new ideas and not ruin my childhood memories...

Hahaha... 3D Realms is fine... yeah ok. You laid off your entire development staff, whored your name and franchises out, and are being sued for gross mismanagement of a single game development project for 12 years.

Yeah, you're fine. Don't sweat it.

What about DOOM? DOOM has gotten many sequels/reboot/whatever and ROTT barely has any sequels.

DNF will come out, just you wait. And it will be great despite the long wait. Just like Daikatana was f*cking great!

Oh wait...
