3DR/DNF Rumors Follow-up

A comment by George Broussard on the Shacknews Forums (thanks Frans and FiringSquad) follows up on yesterday's rumors of departures from 3D Realms that may impact the development of Duke Nukem Forever (story). George offers a snide remark about the site's investigative journalism, and the portion excepted below, which addresses how close the game is to completion, while not actually denying the reported defections have occurred:

Physics and animation systems are virtually finished and shippable. It's simply maintenance and polish from here on out. We haven't needed to make substantial changes to those systems in months. The changes we have made, were made without great effort. Things are never as bleak as they appear, as is often the case when you simply have one side of the story.

In software development, 90% of the work takes like 10% of the time. That's why super cool screenshots are always released but then the game doesn't come out for another few years. That last 10% is a killer, so I'm certainly not going to think the game is right around the corner if all that remains is "maintenance and polish".
