3D Realms still kickin’, company says May 19, 2009

Posted by Chris McKenna in Action, Legal, PC.

Contrary to reports from a couple weeks back, Duke Nukem Forever developer 3D Realms hasn’t been shut down.

“3D Realms … has not closed and is not closing,” the company said in an issued press release.

Although 3D Realms still owns the rights to the Duke Nukem francise, the development team behind Duke Nukem Forever was laid off on the 6th, and parent company Take-Two holds the rights to the game itself.

3D Realms is currently battling Take-Two in an ongoing lawsuit, which 3DR called a “bully tactic” aimed at winning  over the rights to the entire series.

Despite such setbacks, 3D Realms “will continue to operate as a company and continue to license and co-create games based upon the Duke Nukem franchise.”
