Game Developer 3D Realms Closes It's Doors

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.
