Take 2 sues former Duke Nukem Forever developer 3DRealms, demanding to turn over all existing DNF source code. The court documents have turned up online, showing the lawsuit's exact details.
There is yet hope...
Actually there isnt ...
The way I see it is Take 2 are demanding the software that is owed to them. 2 possible reasons exist: 1: To use the source code as evidence of how little work was actually completed during the game's 12 year development cycle. 2: To obtain the work that's already been done and assign a development studio to the game that will actually complete the project in a timely manner.
...for their case against 3dRealms.
3DRealms, stop being jerks and just give the code and give the game a chance to be finished instead if drowning it with you.
Didn't George Brussard say that he always kept the game on a solid state hard drive that he carries with himself at all times? I honestly believe that he destroyed it from any regular PC and the only copy left is with him. I say lets jump him and get that hard drive and play the game that Jesus himself has touched.
I wouldnt buy this game at this point if it turned out to be the best game EVER. Id like to take a big steamy pile of poo on the source code then recycle it, do it again, then proceed to burn it with fire just to make sure we have to never hear about this pathetic game again. The first one wasnt even that good.
3DRealms is garbage. Press agree.
3D realms are in deeeeeeep sh1t
Some new screenshots after the document! Some of em look awesome!
These have been online for days on cynamite
i cant wait until all this sh*t unfolds. i want to know who to blame for the whole disaster. and it is a disaster, many people have waited for this game half their lives... and get nothing for it.
Wow. 167 screens. Pretty nice looking stuff in there. Although I suppose you're bound to have an impressive collection after 13 years.
12+ years to develop an arcade game that looks like Wii shovelware? I love Duke but this game should have been released in 2001.
now you're stretching it, Duke Nukem for N64 was AWESOME and a classic. One of THE best retro games I have ever played. From the trailer it looked like DNF has some awesome enemy AI, and I would buy it if it EVER came out (prob won't). I'm a gamer, not a Take-Two exec, whatever they do on their own time is their own business. I just want to play awesome games.
lol this was obvious. Take 2 sue 3drealms only to have Duke Nukem games. They will probably go off-court and take 2 will ask to 3drealms give them Duke nukem 3d and will drop everything against 3drealms.
Good. i hope they get the source code then give to a dev that can complete the damn thing in a year or 2
