"Duke Nukem Forever" future in doubts?

Make of this whatever you want:

Staff shift stirs 3D Realms
Shacknews report of personnel exodus casts doubt on Duke Nukem Forever; developer dismisses headline as alarmist.
By Tor Thorsen, GameSpot
Posted Aug 31, 2006 12:23 pm PT

Duke Nukem Forever has been in development for the better part of a decade. However, the past 24 hours have seen the game return to the spotlight, courtesy of a report on Shacknews.com.

Yesterday evening, Shacknews posted an article under the title "3D Realms Sees Major Employee Departures, Fate of DNF in Question?" The site cited "numerous sources" as saying that "up to 10 major team members have left the company," including several departures "within the past few days."

Seven 3D Realms staffers were named as having left the company, including Scott Alden, Will Bate, and Andy Hanson. Shacknews later identified four others--Brian Cozzens, Kyle Davis, Keith Schuler, and Charlie Wiederhold--as having departed to another Texas-based studio, Gearbox Software. The quartet is reportedly now working on an unidentified upcoming Brothers in Arms game.

When the Shacknews story broke, GameSpot attempted to contact 3D Realms founder George Broussard, who still had not returned requests for comment as of press time. However, 3D Realms webmaster and longtime staffer Joe Siegler addressed the Shacknews article on the developer's forums.

"I dispute the doomsday scenario painted by the Shacknews headline," Siegler said. "I love how these news stories say 'Up to 10' and everyone thinks that the entire team has left, or the majority have or whatnot. As was pointed out in the story, this didn't all happen like YESTERDAY. We've had others come in recently, and there's more coming in, too. This impression I've been reading about 'over half the team leaving' implies that there's nobody left, and the folks who are still here are trying to muddle through. Hardly."

Siegler also said that work on Duke Nukem Forever was moving ahead. However, he cautioned against inflated expectations for the game, which has been in development since 1997. "Some people seem to think that DNF will be like the second coming of Christ, will solve all the world's problems, wash your dishes, and give you guilt, sin-free orgasms," he said. "It's a game. It will be a fun game."

Everyone cares because Duke was an awesome game. Though we're all pretty much laughing and calling it vapoware at the same time. ITs a love love relationship.

I enjoyed the original. After that the series went to crap after every installment.

The only one I liked was Duke Nukem 64 because it was the only one with co-op play which was awesome.

I would love to play it and I'm looking forward to it, and I loved the duke nukem original series! But I doubt that it will sell well, because it's been off the market for so long! :S Oh well, I'll still buy it. Lols!

:kill: :kill:

The first Duke on -PC- was awesome. The ones after it were shitty and not worth my time.
