3D Realms: DNF Development "Swimming Along Nicely"

In this day and age, we don't consider E3 to be essential for all game developers, but to call it "irrelevant" may not be entirely accurate...especially when you're talking about a game like Duke Nukem Forever.

According to Next-Gen.biz, 3D Realms boss Scott Miller has said that development on the game "is swimming along nicely...seriously nicely," and that he believes that E3 "is irrelevant nowadays." He added- "In fact, I wasn't even aware it was coming up." That's all very well and good, and it's certainly true that this year's E3 is essentially a shadow of former shows (39 exhibitors compared to 400 five years ago), but even so, we need some DNF news. I mean, the release date for this game - which has probably been in GameStop's database for about 11 years now - is still the very vague and kinda egotistical, "when it's done." We would understand this stance a little more if we hadn't been led down an endless road for over a decade, but gamers have long since grown tired of the runaround.

No, E3 isn't necessary. But it would've been a fine idea to prove to gamers, a whole new generation of gamers now, that Duke Nukem Forever will be worthy of our attention in the increasingly competitive world of FPSs. In the end, we'd appreciate a bone tossed in our direction. For example, could they officially confirm that a PS3 version really is in the works? That'd be a start.

this game might end up suffering the same fate as alone in the dark or worse, haze!

Well, at least they picked a fitting name for it. Cause it is taking forever! Maybe a better title would be Duke Nukem: Forever in development! The song that Megadeth did for DN was really kick ass by the way.

I was always wondering if this was just one big colossal joke by 3D Realms, and they called it "Duke Nukem Forever" because it's the most elaborate hoax in video game history. ;)

They may as well give up if it takes any longer. Really, the reason this game would sell is because Duke Nukem is a well know name. But it's a name that people are forgetting fast.
I doubt they can make it a game that will sell well on it's own steam. And if they did, they'd be better off starting something completely new rather than being restricted by an established character.
Even so, i hope this game is real and that it's worth playing in 2020 when it eventual comes out

Arnold's going. But if E3 is as small next year as it is this year, nobody may go in '09...

They might as well develop for the next generation consoles if they are taking five years longer. By that time PS3 and 360 will have been succeeded by PS4 and 720 (assuming). Anyhow, I look forward to their upcoming announcements.
