If it's released later this year or early next, gives me more time to save for a new PC.

But I dont believe any release date unless George posts one here, otherwise its still WID.

It will be released at the end of 2008 / early 2009.
DNF is NOT Vaporware.

(Should it not be release at the end of 2008, I will hack and delete George's MMO account !)

Re: DNF Confirmed for 2008, and confirmed for 360/PS3!
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 am glad George cleared that up for us.
I guess this whole development has been one big learning experience for them. But why would a local journal think you would announce a release date to them? That makes no sense.

While I realise that the console versions of the game would be the biggest sellers, please dont make the PC version a crappy bloatware port like Assasins Creed is shaping up to be George.

(assuming the "rumors" are true, that is)

My excitement skyrocketed when I first saw the thread, but it seems I missed out on the fun, and it's not as concrete as everyone hoped. As soon as I read the link I knew the info 3DRealms had given had been misinterpreted and it was not an official statement. At least we know they are getting ever closer, and are positive with the work they are doing.

Regardless it's been an enjoyable thread.

Dont worry about that man cuz they have said all along that they are making a PC version first and then they will port it over. by the sounds of it they are allready porting or just starting that process now which is good news for a lazy gamer like me. but i will get the PC version for MP. So it is not like they have focused on the console versions, they have focused on the PC version as far as I know, which means a solid game all around for all of us. \o/

Is it time for me to go to the "New Releases" sections of my local PC game stores? I'll remove all the games so Duke will have a place to sit. Maybe i'll also clear a whole aisle. Duke needs his space and everyone is going to want him!

As Security intervenes, i'll yell "DNF is coming, really it is !!!!"
