Duke Nukem Forever: Close to Completion?

Duke Nukem (it’ll take) Forever has been in the works for a very long time. While most of us have long since given up on the game (and put the possibility of Duke Nukem Forever up there with the Tooth Fairy and Santa Clause), those of you still looking for that one piece of news that justifies the shred of hope you so desperately cling to need look no further; this should tide you over for the next couple of years.

The Duke Nukem Forever team have apparently hit another milestone in production. According to 3DRealms' CEO George Broussard, the company passed another milestone last week. While Broussard didn’t say which milestone had been passed he did say that the team had roughly “71 more tasks to do” and that they had started with probably 800 to 900.

Before anyone starts hyperventilating, let's rain on the parade. We’re not about to get excited about these Tweets. Don’t forget, Duke Nukem is but one title that 3DRealms is working on and these status updates could be referring to any one of the other games 3DRealms has on its to-do list, like Prey 2. Still, it’s nice to dream.

    71 more? So another 2 years?
    And what happens when they have to rewrite the graphics engine again?
    Or did they rent the Cryengine so that it will never be able to run at highest settings?

    Oh god, oh god!! Forever is coming.

    Er. Well, we all live up to see if we live forever, but I really don't think DKF will live up to the hype we had going since forever (I hear that story every year or so, so I'm not really expecting the game).
