Duke Nukem Forever Follow-up

The 3D Realms Forums offer the promised follow-up from George Broussard on the Duke Nukem Forever story from this morning (story):
I'd like to address the article the Dallas Business Journal put up today.

In what appears to be an unfortunate turn of events, there seems to have been some confusion between what was 'off the record' and what was not. I suppose we're used to dealing with gaming press and not mainstream press. Lesson learned.

While we have internal targets, dates and goals, like every developer, we are not ready to share them. What's amazing about this is that the DBJ must have assumed that we'd actually announce a date to them, and not gaming press, and that even in the light of Scott's quote of "We can't make an official announcement.", the DBJ effectively did that. Lesson learned.

The release date is still 'when it's done', and will be until the appropriate moment. Platforms have not been finalized or announced. You can rest assured that we are moving toward a goal and that the recently released teaser trailer is the start of that process and seeing more of the game, sooner than later.

We apologize to gamers and websites everywhere for this series of events. Sometimes, you can be too trusting of people and assume things that come back to bite you. Lesson learned.

I personally can't actually think of anything worse professionally; enthusiasm is *required* to work on the development of something for three plus years and then start all over again on something fresh and new. You have to have a certain kind of mind-set to survive that process and part of it is actually getting to the end, regardless of wether you are developing software, an engineering project or any other peice of large collaberative work.

Missing the carthis of actually finishing something for as long as 10 years can be pretty dispiriting, which I guess is partly why 3DRealms seem to have a fairly regular flow of new tallent without any obvious external signs of progress.
