3D Realms Closes [Confirmed]

Creators of the Ever so popular Duke Nukem Series Have Closed there doors, Thus leaving all the fans who have waited over 12 years for Duke Nukem Forever(DNF) Are left hanging


Source:

3D Realms webmaster Joe Siegler has commented on the shut down, "It's not a marketing thing. It's true. I have nothing further to say at this time."

Duke Nukem Forever publisher Take-Two has confirmed to Shacknews that it was not funding ongoing development of the 3D Realms project.


Its a sad day

Heh, just noticed that the initials for Duke Nukem Forever is DNF, same as the Did Not Finish for racers etc who don't manage to finish the race.

Anyways, I don't see this as a loss, only problem is that we no longer have Duke Nukem Forever to joke about.

Not a loss. This whole DNF thing was one huge scam, I tell you.

Even if 3D Realms does not exist, somebody will have the franchise rights and we will see another Duke Nukem game in the future.

It might not be Duke Nukem Forever and if it isnt hopefully somebody comes out with some sort of literature about what happened with it. I think it would be very interseting.

Take Two still hold the publishing rights to DNF.

It would be good if someone else got hold of DNF and actually finished it, Monolith would be great for it.

I would say the creators of Painkiller, or Serious Sam (if they are the same guys, then well, yeah) over Monolith.

Just because Monolith games are more story driven that Duke Nukem.
But Monolith would make a good game anyways, so it would still be cool.

Sucks. I knew DNF was a bunch of baloney, but I did hope for another DN game at some point. I actually went back and finished DN3D on PC a couple weeks ago. I got so nostalgic, it brought a tear to my eye. laughing out loud

Most of you guys were tuny when DN3D came out!

But let's face it, Duke Nukem had been dead for a decade- dead as soon as it didn't come out inside two years. It belonged to a past era of computer games; it was a rival to the likes of Doom, for God's sake. It's whole sustaining premise was the 'adult' material, beyond that it had absolutely nothing to offer any more. Once Half-Life came out, the idea that a new Duke Nukem game could really be such a big deal, objectively (as opposed to nostalgically) speaking was a dead one, and the FPS genre has only galloped on by further leaps and bounds since.

Studio or no studio, the actual concept of the 'awesome DNF game' was never going to see reality. And in that respect- perhaps better that the attempt never comes.

But did anyone expect the game to be good in any way?

Whats funny ?

Duke 3D onwards including the console games had decent stories just not Half-Life quality that people are after.

No-one ever played DN3D for the story. It;s simply not something associated with Duke Nukem. it really was the strippers and kicking the urinals.
