Thumbs up DNF Dallas Business Journal Article, 2008, and stuff
yayayayayayayyay!!!!!!

this looks like real info after all. perhaps that teaser video was a really good sign of things to come!!!!!!!!!!

http://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/st...4/daily17.html

Edit from Joe3DR: Here's an update from the Shacknews story about this..

Quote:
Update: 3D Realms has informed Shacknews that a release date and platforms for Duke Nukem Forever were not confirmed in its interview with the Dallas Business Journal. A more detailed response is expected later today.

Re: DNF Confirmed for 2008, and confirmed for 360/PS3!
Wow, thanks for the heads up Cacodemon! This looks like a legit article.

Quote:
Garland-based video games developer 3D Realms has confirmed Duke Nukem Forever, the highly anticipated sequel to its revolutionary 1996 PC game Duke Nukem 3D, is headed for retail release in late 2008, and will be coming to Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3 home video game consoles, as well as the PC.

"We haven't formally announced any platforms for DNF," wrote 3D Realms President Scott Miller in an e-mail exchange. "But, of course hitting the big three makes the most sense (PC, PS3, 360)."

Miller added a note of caution on the 12-years-coming sequel and its release window, claiming, "we may miss the mark by a month or two, but I feel very confident that we're on target this time."

Duke Nukem Forever is not the only 3D Realms title coming to home video game consoles in 2008. Miller also confirmed the existence of a downloadable Xbox Live Arcade version of Duke Nukem 3D, which will feature on-line multiplayer support, Xbox Live achievements, on-line score boards, and a co-op mode.

"We're really excited about bringing classic Duke to the 360," said Miller during an interview. "We're talking to Microsoft about getting a release slot sometime this year."
So late 2008/early 2009.

AWESOME!!!

STAY TUNED INDEED!!!!

That website looks like something that wouldn't kid around with such news though...

Or is it one of those public submitted news sites..?
Personally, i expect more of a 2009, sounds far more realistic... The same year as when the teaser was shown though would be quite a shock to me..!

I have no doubt this interview/article is the real deal. Now if this was around April 1st, huge grain of salt.

It certainly is... but for whatever reason they saw fit to delete the last thread, and that happened just a few minutes prior to this one going up.

Maybe they were planning some sort of announcement, but this site leaked the info too early?

Damn.. I was really hoping for a 2011 20th anniversary release.. Anyway, this is no reason to lose hope yet. Until the game's officially out, everything 3D Realms is saying is just speculation.

Re: DNF Confirmed for 2008, and confirmed for 360/PS3!
Look, I don't think we should be getting our hopes up. If the last topic was deleted, it's probably because they still don't want to say anything really "official," on the off-chance that something does come up and they don't release it in that estimated time period. We know well in the past they've been wrong, so they're probably hesitant to set anything in stone.

No, it will just give you more fuel to make up your own stories.

You guys should know by now that I don't confirm or deny anything about DNF - that comes from Scott or George.

True. To some.

For me a locked or deleted thread would mean not true. But we'll have to wait.

if you have been watching the original link all morning...

they originally posted about more info in a new issue of the magazine, then it went away, and now its back again..

makes me wonder if anything else is changed, or if 3dr is asking them to make changes or something......
