New Team Might Take the Reins on Duke Nukem Forever [Update]

May 18, 2009Written by Dan Massi


In its lawsuit against Duke Nukem creator 3D Realms, Take 2 Interactive has demanded the source code for Duke Nukem Forever. The confirmation came from various court documents, which have materialized online.

If you recall, 3D Realms allegedly closed down due to financial problems, and was slapped with a lawsuit by Take 2 just a few days after since the team hadn’t completed the game as promised. The documents are included below.

If we do see Take-2 Interactive getting the source code from 3D Realms, and for Duke Nukem Forever, might we possibly see another developer working on the title? It only makes sense, considering the type of files that Take 2 is asking for. Would you still like to see Duke Nukem Forever, even with a new developer at the helm? Or should they just give the series a rest? Let us know in the comment section below!

Update: 3D Realms has assured us that they have not closed down.
