While I'm still on 3DR's side and fully expect DNF to see the light of day at some point in the future, this announcement just cracked me up. 3DR is already in so much shit already (or nearly forgotten if you're a real cynic) for DNF being so late. And now this. Classic
More than any other game I can think of, DNF is going to have the mother f**ker of all expectation against it. Eventhough its not really fair since they switched engines (at least once right?), wrote their own renderer, blah blah, but how are they going to deal with "X many years in development, and it can't do this or that?" In some ways, it reminds of Halflife's development, where they did a bunch of work, chucked it, and started over.
