Duke Nukem Still Has A Pulse
7:47 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

Back on June 28th 2000, IMG's Andy Largent wrote that 3D Realms' Duke Nukem Forever was "rivaled ... only by Bungie's Oni as the game longest in development without tangible result."

Well, it's been over four years since that statement, and hopeful Mac gamers have seen many new PC game ports on the Mac. The sci-fi, anime-style third person shooter Oni is but a mere memory in the back of most of our minds. Yet, rumor on the street is that 3D Realms' Duke Nukem Forever, which most cynical gamers had long since abandoned all hope for, is apparently still in development, and is crawling closer to completion.

PC gaming website Voodoo Extreme has posted a quick interview with George Broussard, President of 3D Realms and Action Entertainment. Despite the rumors, Broussard assures his readers that a 25-person team is working on the title, and there's still promise for the first person shooter yet.

After throwing out 95% of the work that had been completed back in 2002, Broussard states that the step, although unfortunate, was a necessary one, and will lead to an even superior game:

Were they really wasting time remaking the game with a new engine?

George Broussard - Never fear. As I said before, we were never even close to shipping, so it isn't as if we threw stuff out just because we were being too picky. We basically re-evaluated things, stepped back, tossed a lot of stuff out, fixed some problems and grew up a little in regards to development in the process. We took that opportunity to reset our goals when where we wanted to go, and we had the ability to do it - this time.

The end results will be nice. We've been solidly on track for a long time now and just churning away. We're working towards and end and it will be in your lifetime.

Well, there you have it. Whether or not you believe it is up to you. Stay tuned to IMG when further news on this lllooooonnnnnnnggggggg-awaited title may eventually surface.
