Dun, Dun, Dun! (3D Realms and DNF part 3)

The battle between developer 3D Realms and publisher Take-Two rages on.

3D Realms countersues and counters accusations from Take-Two, a third party title simply named “Duke Begins” is revealed and….Duke Nukem Forever is still in development?

The plot thickens.

I like where this is going…is it too much to hope that the Duke attitude is still alive?

Adding insult to injury.

Part 2 of the 3D Realms shutdown:

Now publisher Take Two is suing  defunct 3D Realms over failure to deliver Duke Nukem Forever.

Nice job suing a bankrupt company guys.

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 🙁
