Duke Nukem Forever Is Not Happening :(

In news that should surprise no one, apparently Duke Nukem Forever, the much anticipated follow up title in development since 1997(!!!), is being scrapped. I guess that's what happens when you take 12 years to develop a game.

Game On just received a somewhat cryptic form-email from development studios Deep Silver and Apogee Entertainment (a legal alias for 3D Realms) stating, simply, that "Deep Silver and Apogee Software are not affected by the situation at 3D Realms" and that "Development on the Duke Nukem Trilogy is continuing as planned." No further details were offered, or reference made to what the "situation at 3D Realms" actually is.

The situation, I suspect, is pissing money into a game for 12 years and seeing no return. I mean, I'm not financial analyst or anything, but I do know I want to ring the bell at the NYSE someday.

Thanks to JMR and Nathan, who remember Duke when he was just Duke Napalmem.

    Hey you losers from so yesterday of 2009. Sending a message from the future to give you guys a heads up. Spoiler Alert! Duke Nukem Forever suck salty monkey balls big time. In addition you have to wait two more years before you will even get a chance to play this shity game. By the way we have hover cars in 2015. So suck it fags. Later!
