Duke Nukem Forever Using DOOM 3 Engine?!

Update: Shacknews has quote from 3D Realms' George Broussard saying that this is the result of some confusion, and is not true, the story going on to clarify that DNF is using a 100% in-house engine. - Original story: Listening through the entirety of the Take Two quarterly earnings conference call (thanks GameSurf) offers a startling revelation. A question about a Duke Nukem Forever release date, which naturally was not provided, elicited the casual remark that the game is "using the DOOM 3 technology, which is finished." 3D Realms' long-in-development shooter started as a Quake engine game, before switching to the Unreal engine. There you go -- proof that even dry conference calls can be exciting.

The game doesn't exist, every time a new engine comes out the game 'switches' to it just to bring our attention back to it. It's a psychological experiment in human behavior, run by a secret government orginization, designed to see how long they can keep interest up in a nonexistant project. This data is collected, processed, and then used by politicians to create their agendas to keep themselves in office.

It does sound like something Kerr - er, never mind, no political posts, right?

The new Quake-43 game blows my mind. It is even better than Super Turbo Turkey Puncher.
