3D Realms: Duke Coming Along, E3 "Irrelevant"

3D Realms chief Scott Miller tells Next-Gen that development on the long-awaited Duke Nukem Forever is moving right along, but he sees no reason to show it off at an "irrelevant" E3.

Asked about the progress on the years-in-development Duke Nukem Forever, Miller stated Friday in an e-mail, "Development is swimming along nicely. Seriously nicely."

E3 gets the attention of millions of hardcore gamers (his Duke Nukem fans) and is aired on television and covered all over the internet.

How is it irrelevant? :0

The hype is long time gone and I dont think people would still dig the whole Duke Nukem concept.Alot of todays gamers btw (teenagers) probably havnt ever played a Duke Nukem.
And thers a whole lot of other cool games out there.
If this game isnt one of the best things out there, they should just give it up.
At least Too Human still had hype.Duke Nukem has nothing at all.

But he's right on this one.

This is nothing more than an excuse by 3D Realms. How can you say it's "irrelevant" to show your game at the industry's most high profile event?

Very ridiculous if you ask me

SCFreelancer3823d ago

I actually agree with him on the fact that the E3 actually lost quite a bit of relevance after the concept change. Quite a few big (PC) developers decided not to attend.

Calling it irrelevant is over the top though and not particularly reassuring for a title that has become the laughing stock of the industry a long time ago.

I agree with him at some point... E3 is not what it used to be, but it is still a important show to present future games. As for Duke Nukem Forever, i do not think it has a future.

I don't want to wait for another 10 years. :,(

This game has been talked about and in development for god only knows how many years.

This game was damn near (and kinda still is) considered vaporware.

And yet this guy says that it's irrelevant to show this game at the industry's biggest event?

That is a nice way to say "F U" to your many fans that have been anticipating your game for about a decade.

My opinion, this is just a developer making an excuse. Trying to cover up the fact that the game is nowhere near ready

Well I think he could have chosen his words much more wisely. But y'know... if they did show something more at E3 and it was sh!t... that might be the last nail in the coffin for a game that has lost almost all its hype due to development time.

lodossrage3823d ago (Edited 3823d ago )

Good Point.

I guess they have an odd situation. They're damned if they do and they're damned if they don't.

"he sees no reason to show it off at an "irrelevant" E3."

Good, because it's probably not ready anyway.
