Garland Game-Makers Taken to NY Court Over Loooong-Delayed Duke Nukem Forever
|One of the few things folks have seen from Duke Nukem Forever, in the making since 1997|
There's a good chance the fight over the fate of Duke Nukem Forever will take forever, as it's now tied up in litigation: Bloomberg News notes that Take-Two has sued Garland-based Apogee in New York State Supreme Court, alleging that "Apogee repeatedly assured Take-Two and the video-gaming community that it was diligently working toward competing development of the PC Version of the Duke Nukem Forever," while pocketing $12 million and delivering bupkis. Miller's been little heard from since the shut-down, but at 1:53 a.m. today he surfaced to defend his company: "We didn't get a penny of that money. This, along with so much else, is 100% spin, being eaten up by those who have no clue whatsoever. But, we cannot talk yet. We will, soon..." Shacknews has read the legal docs and reports that "Take-Two is demanding a copy of the Duke Nukem Forever source code."
