3D Realms the games developer behind the classic games Duke Nukem and Wolfenstein 3D has shut down due to lack of funds.

Founded in 1987 they had a smash hit with Duke Nukem but after working on the follow up for the past 12 years publisher Take-Two has pulled the funds, whilst still retaining the rights to the title. "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 Alan Lewis in a statement.There has been no official announcement from 3D Realms other than a posting on the forum from the company's webmaster. I cannot understand how or why in 12 years the new game had not been finished, I'm not a computer whizz kid or game developer but 12 years, come on thats a long time. It's sad to see that other companies with links to 3D Realms are now distancing themselves very quickly.
