Take Two sues 3D Realms/Apogee over Duke Nukem Forever

We had a feeling that the shutdown of 3D Realms was not the end of the Duke Nukem Forever saga . . . and we were right. Just not in a good way. Bloomberg reports that the game's publisher Take Two Interactive has filed a lawsuit against 3D Realms and its parent company Apogee, claiming that the developer had breached its contract in its handling of the long-in-development shooter.

The lawsuit, filed Wednesday, states, "Apogee continually delayed the completion date for the Duke Nukem Forever. Apogee repeatedly assured Take-Two and the video-gaming community that it was diligently working toward competing development of the PC Version of the Duke Nukem Forever." The story states that Take Two paid $12 million in 2000 for the game's publishing rights and the two parties entered into another agreement in 2007. The story does not state what damages Take Two is asking for in the lawsuit.
