Hmmm... I'll wait for more news, but damn would it be amusing on many levels if the game ended up never coming out.

It would also suck for those involved in development, naturally, and therefore I hope it's not true.

Wow, that would really suck.

We finally see some evidence that the game exists after 7 years of silence and now the developer closes its doors.

If 3DRealms has any control over this at all then it isn't going to happen. No one in their right mind would willingly give up on something they'd spent that much time and money on.

I was sadden by this. Hopefully Take-Two decides to buy 3D Realms or something and keep Duke Nukem Forever development going... heard it's near complete. Man, that sucks.

Otherwise, R.I.P. 3D Realms.

It may be good news. There might actually be a Duke Nukem Forever now that 3D Realms is out of the way.
