Say it ain’t so…

Ouch… :-\

What started out as rumors about 3d Realms demise are starting to look more and more true (this after Wolfenstein 3d just turned 17 as well). It looks like the developer of such titles as Rise of the Triad, Duke Nukem 3d, and Shadow Warrior among many others has reached it’s end. The rumors were also confirmed by Joe Siegler, 3d Realms webmaster, in a post made on the official forums saying:

It’s not a marketing thing. It’s true. I have nothing further to say at this time.

Funding issues have been cited as the reason for closure. Recently resurrected Apogee and Deep Silver (developer of the Duke Nukem trilogy to hit the PSP and DS  starting with Critical Mass this upcoming Fall) are not effected by this situation but Duke Nukem Forever’s fate is shaky at best. Take-Two retains publishing rights to DNF but who knows what’s next. Well, there goes any recent progress on the infamous DNF…

If this is indeed true I’d just like to wish good luck to all the employees of 3d Realms and a big thanks for the great work over the years on fantastic games.

R.I.P. 3d Realms 🙁

UPDATE: Tasty gameplay footage and new images have emerged since the official goodbye on the 3D Realms website.
