3drealms-logoI’m sure that the entire community of gamers hoped deep inside that the rumors I’ve told you about regarding the closure of 3D Realms, the creators of Duke Nukem among other great games, but today we have official confirmation that everything was true: 3D Realms indeed closes its doors after 17 years in the business!

3D Realms staffer Joe Siegler wrote on the official forums of the company: “It’s not a marketing thing. It’s true. I have nothing further to say at this time.”

So yes, it’s a sad day for us all and especially for those who were hoping to see Duke Nukem Forever as soon as possible. Now all we can hope for is that the former staff of the legendary development studio will find their way out of this mess and continue to deliver quality entertainment to us. RIP, 3D Realms!
