A dark day for Duke...

So here's some bad news- it looks like 3D Realms, creators of Duke Nukem and many more, are shuttering their doors. /taps

The studio has simply run out of money and can no longer function as a standalone. It's unclear what's happening with Duke Forever(although it probably wasn't going to come out anyway) and the Prey franchise. The latter of which was due several sequels as well as an iPhone game.

Come to think of it, the iPhone game was due in February. So that was probably the first sign of impending doom. (Doom is still iPhone bound thankfully)

What will not be affected is the planned (and actually being developed)Duke Nukem Trilogy. DNT is a three game set of third-person action games coming soon. (we hope)
