Duke Nukem Forever Not Dead? (Yes, This Again)

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 61 comments

Duke's voice actor tells you to read between the lines.

Is Duke Nukem dead? We've been asking ourselves that for more than a decade, and it seems that we're all still asking the same questions.

While we know that DNF's future is shakier than ever, those who are hopeful manage to find glimmers of a brighter day at the tiniest hints. Jon St. John, better known as the voice of Duke Nukem, said some interesting words during a panel discussion at the Music and Games Festival (MAGFest) that took place January 1 – 4 in Alexandria, Virginia, according to Pixel Enemy.

Answering a question from the crowd regarding DNF, St. John said:

I’m not allowed to speak on that subject, sir.

He’s asking about Duke Nukem Forever, let me go ahead and tell you right now that I’m not allowed to talk about Duke Nukem Forever.

No, no, don’t be disappointed, read between the lines… why am I not allowed to talk about it?

Given that Duke Nukem Forever is tied up in the middle of a legal battle between 3DRealms and 2K Games, fans are hanging on to all the hope they can get.

    I think you mean the decendants of the original fans.

    Does anyone see a similarity between DNF and religious beliefs about the imminent arrival of some supernatural phenomena or some looming end of the world scenario?

    Give me 10 in-game screenshots, and at least 1 gameplay video so I will stop believing that this game takes forever to release.

    I'm gonna put the release date as the day after Republicans come back to reality and the majority of democrats stop acting like spoiled brats.

    I might have to load up my copy of Duke Nukem 3D hmmm probably Dosbox would be best lol might as well pop in Shadow Warrior too while I am at it.

    Could be worse things to play.

    About DNF.... I honestly hope it comes out, that way it will be over for good or for bad just let it end... lol

    "No, no, don’t be disappointed, read between the lines… why am I not allowed to talk about it?"

    Because there's nothing to say other than some not-so-subtle hint that it may still be in development, something that we've known for over a decade anyway. Being in development doesn't mean its ever going to be finished, or that it's even been started. It just hasn't been canned.

    They cannot talk about a game they Did Not Finish.

    Same.

    In other news, Bioshock 2 and Mass Effect 2 are coming out, and they will probably kick ass.

    articles about DNF start to make me feel like the question "Does it play crysis?"

    They shouldn't be published unless the game is ready and there is a demo available.

    From the recent Avatar movie, the guy who played Colonel Miles Quaritch, Stephen Lang.

    He is a shoe-in for the movie adaption of Duke Nukem.

    They've given tons of footage and screens of Duke Nukem Forever over the years kid.

    Probably you were still playing Pokemans.

    I struggle to understand how something that takes so long to create, can be up to date on release, It might just be a big o`l knob tease. I have good memories from the old game, so secretly I hope it comes out and is awesome!

    The reason it is taking so long has got to be some kind of "Howard Hughes" style nervous tick. They develop an engine and start working, get half way through and they some other game comes out with a better engine. They do a bit of "Rain Man" head smacking and go back to the drawing board.

    Someone needs to remind them it doesn't matter if the game engine isn't the hottest-shit ever, as Crysis will testify it is sometimes a double-edged sword.
