DNF/3D Realms Problems?

Shacknews has a speculative story up suggesting that the development team for Duke Nukem Forever has suffered numerous recent personnel departures, which would be another setback for a project that's been in development for well over nine years now. Coincidentally, it was 10 years ago this month that 3D Realms suffered a mass exodus, including folks working on the original version of Prey, which lead to the formation of Ritual Entertainment. Here is a bit of what they are reporting:

Shacknews has learned from numerous reputable sources close to the game's development that, since approximately the end of 2005, 3D Realms has had something of an employee exodus. Apparently, up to ten major team members have left the company, with multiple departures having occurred as recently as within the past few days.

Developers confirmed to have left 3D Realms since last December include Scott Alden, Will Bate, Brian Cozzens, Kyle Davis, Andy Hanson, Keith Schuler, and Charlie Wiederhold. Some of the former employees headed up crucial game systems such as physics, animation, and rendering. Notably, Schuler is a sixteen year veteran of Apogee and 3D Realms. Our sources indicate that while the game's team has reached a size of about 24-28 developers, recently it has been closer to 18, meaning these current departures may actually comprise a majority of the team. Several sources have indicated that further information regarding these matters is expected next week.
