3D Realms closes down
Major news reaches us this morning as we learn that Duke Nukem Forever creators 3D Realms have now closed down, owing to a lack of funding. A statement from publisher Take-Two informs us that they will retain the rights to the unreleased Duke Nukem Forever.
"It's not a marketing thing," assured webmaster Joe Siegler. "It's true. I have nothing further to say at this time."
No one senior at 3D Realms has yet to comment on this, but it seems the firm simply ran out of funding, little surprise given Duke Nukem Forever's protracted development period.
"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," says Take-Two exec Alan Lewis.
"In addition, Take-Two continues to retain the publishing rights to Duke Nukem Forever."
Looks like Duke Nukem Forever is no more... meanwhile, Deep Silver assure that Duke Nukem Trilogy will be released as planned on handhelds.
