1up interview with George Brussard wrote:
GB: You know, we've been so busy on Duke Forever for so long that we can't really see past just finishing this game, but you never can tell when it's done, you know, what you want to work on next.

1UP: Wait, wait. You guys are working on Duke Forever?

GB: [Laughs] And ever and ever.

1UP: And when's that due out again?

GB: [Laughs] I think it'll be out when pigs fly. But it's definitely going well now. Things are together; we're in full production. We're basically just pulling all the pieces together and making the game out of it. There's a lot that's finished. All the guns are finished. Most of the creatures are finished. And as I said, we're just basically pulling it all together and trying to make it fun. We've kind of got all these disassociated elements that make up a game, and you put them together and things happen. And then you just tweak it and polish it until it's fun, and that's kind of the phase we're in now, just trying to make something that is really fun to play and interesting.

1UP: Hey, you know, that's awesome. I have to give you respect because with so many people out there saying stuff, it would be very easy to just, you know, pack it in or whatnot, and you guys have been resolute of, "This is going to be an awesome game. Just chill out." And I think that's fantastic.

GB: Oh, well, thanks.
:lol:

I don't see what the big deal is. Yeah, we all want to play great games, so it sucks when we expect a good game to come out and it doesn't arrive on time. The thing is, I have a great deal of respect for the folks at Apogee/3D Realms, and if they feel a game needs a decade to complete, that's their prerogative. It doesn't make much difference to me how long the game takes to make.

Apogee/3D Realms is a well-established company that has had a hand in producing about nine or ten games in the last decade. Does failing to ship one game out of ten make a company a failure or a laughing stock? Of course not!

Arr, matey! When Duke Nukem Forever finally ships, someone's going to take a long walk off a short gangplank!

Have betting shops started giving odds on the title being an outdated stinker of a mis-mash of ideas?

Hmm, at least the engine is so outdated that it will run on my 6600 just fine.

Cheap marketing trick that 3Drealms just wants people to know they actually still exist. $10 says we never ever see Duke 3D.
