- Dec 31, 1969
Just over a week ago we linked a story from the Dallas Business Journal that claimed Duke Nukem Forever was confirmed for 2008. 3D Realms took issue with the story calling the DBJ lying bastards. The newspaper changed the original story, removing the confirmed and posted an audio clip of 3D Realms clearly saying the game might make it in 08. Next Generation did a great job summing up the whole ordeal in one neat and tidy article. Hit the link for all the details.
Following the report, Next-Gen contacted 3D Realms boss Scott Miller promptly for confirmation. What we got was a one-line e-mail from the always-outspoken Miller: Quite simply, they are lying bastards and they know it. During the course of the day, the DBJ updated its story, removing the confirmed line and scaled back the statement, saying Duke Nukem Forever is possible in 2008, and noted the storys update.
