Duke Nukem Forever cost Broussard between 20 and 30 million USD
Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford has been giving his estimate of how much George Broussard lost on Duke Nukem Forever.
According to Pitchford the former head of 3D Realms George Broussard lost between 20 and 30 million USD of his own money on the never-ending project that Duke Nukem Forever became.
The Gearbox boss told press at a preview event for Duke Nukem Forever of his memories of the day 3D Realms closed: "I spoke to George Broussard and he said, 'Randy, this is the worst day of my life' but you could hear in his voice there was more. This was 12 years of his life... try and imagine what you've achieved in 12 years, Gearbox has made 15 games in that time."
Pitchford added: "George Broussard is not a poor man but I would estimate that he lost 20 to 30 million dollars of his own money on Duke Nukem Forever - I don't care who you are, that's a hell of a lot of money. He was committed to Duke to the point of insanity... and now Duke was dead. He decided he would rather have it burn that have a bad version of the game come out."
