3D Realms talks down staff departure report
George Broussard and Joe Siegler from 3D Realms have both responded to Shacknews' report about mass exodus from the company. Broussard, 3D Realms' President and co-founder, stated in the Shack's comments section that physics and animation systems for Duke Nukem Forever are "virtually finished and shippable"—a response to the report's mention that employees responsible for those systems had departed the company.
Meanwhile, 3D Realms' webmaster Joe Siegler explained on the company's forums, "There's honestly nothing to be concerned about. People leave. People come. There's staff on the project you don't know about." Nevertheless, 3D Realms' job listings page currently shows the company is looking for a senior game designer, a core gameplay programmer, and a level designer.
