Duke Nukem Forever Lawsuits Settled

3D Realms/Apogee and Take-Two have filed to dismiss the lawsuits over Duke Nukem Forever, the still incomplete first-person shooter that's been duking it out in the courts. Word is the matter is now settled, as Shacknews has a filing saying: "The above action, including any and all claims that were or could have been asserted by the parties, is dismissed with prejudice in according with the terms of the Settlement Agreement executed by the parties on May 14, 2010." Take-Two sued 3D Realms over their failure to complete the game in May 2009, which was followed by a 3D Realms countersuit the following month over development of a separate Duke Nukem game. Details of the settlement are not revealed, though Shack notes that "dismissed with prejudice" means that neither company can file another lawsuit in this matter.

"Details of the settlement are not revealed"

I wonder if the settlement was the Duke Nukem IP to 2K. After all 3D Realms/Apogee is pretty much a non entity at this point so its not like they will ever use the IP themselves.

There will be no DNF they've slipped too many technology cycles and even if it were to be released it would be akin to releasing an 8-bit Nintendo game to compete with Crysis and all the funds have pretty much dried up to finance another engine shift and redesign.

They could always just go digital distribution only, and make people agree to something that says absolutely no support will be offered for their purchase. I think people would still buy it, and it's better than nothing. This is of course dependent on how close it was to gold. If it was buggy and unfinished in areas, but still playable from beginning to end, I would throw down maybe $5-$10 just out of curiosity.

If it's not finished, they should release it as freeware, using some kind of "as is" license. In the past more polished games were released for free (RTCW:ET) just because the producers weren't happy with the final result, I don't think it's right to expect people to pay a dime for something half-baked, even "just out of curiosity".

This game is like Jason. You keep thinking its dead but it just won't die for some reason.  
Just because you aren't afraid of something doesn't it mean it can't kill you...

I heard, Broussard goes for Source Engine 2
Funny I heard that it'll be out in 2022 with direct neural implants.

Duke Nukem For(n)ever is officially game over. Broussard will join John Romero in the history of fallen game developers and milk what's left of their careers producing hand held and/or cell phone games.

Can we get whomever runs these legal departments put in charge of DNF? They resolved potential years of litigation in under a year. Imagine what they could do in game development!
