Duke Nukem For(N)ever?
By: HoriZon

3D Realms has closed because of insufficient funding, placing the future of Duke Nukem Forever once more in doubt.

"It's not a marketing thing. It's true," confirmed 3D Realms webmaster Joe Siegler on the official forum - a post since removed, but saved by Shacknews.

Take-Two will retain the rights to Duke Nukem Forever but never agreed to fund development, which has presumably ground to a halt.

"We can confirm that our relationship with 3D Realms for Duke Nukem Forever was a publishing arrangement, which did not include ongoing funds for development of the title," said Take-Two's mouthpiece Alan Lewis.

"In addition, Take-Two continues to retain the publishing rights to Duke Nukem Forever."

None of this, we're told in a statement by Apogee Software and Deep Silver, will affect the Duke Nukem Trilogy for PSP and DS.

"Deep Silver and Apogee Software are not affected by the situation at 3D Realms. Development on the Duke Nukem Trilogy is continuing as planned," explain the companies.

Well that's a bit of bummer, but tbh could this game have lived up to the 12 year hype it has had?
