On Duke's Date

Game maker Take-Two reports lower profits (thanks Action Vault) is a Reuters story that clarifies a recent report on the status of Duke Nukem Forever's release date that was a bit unclear at first about whether the news that Duke's next adventure would not be available until 2002 (story) referred to the PC version, the console ports, or both. This report is based on the same conference call as the original one, and says: "The company said on a conference call that its long-awaited title Duke Nukem Forever for the PC will not ship in the fourth quarter, as planned, but Paul Eibler, Take-Two's president, said that will not affect fourth quarter guidance." Of course, if Duke was actually "planned" for a Q4 release this year as the report states, it would have been internally, as the stated release date for this game since the project's inception has been "when it's done," so it's really not fair to say the game is delayed.

I have a life (sort of ;), so a game's release isn't all important. BUT, I've been eagerly awaiting this game since 1997 I think. I'm tired..help me 3d Realms. I just can't understand how a game can take this long when it isn't starting completely from scratch. I'm sure there are tons of engine enhancements but jeesh! Sorry for beating the dead horse though.

Maybe you could just license Duke to Raven so we can see the game in 8 months on the Quake III engine?
