It's no joke. 3D Realms is closing and there's the very real possibility Duke Nukem Forever is dead. At least, that's what we thought before seeing former 3D Realms artist Brian Brewer accidentally leak gameplay footage through his demo reel (via Shacknews).
Warning: the video featured over at Shacknews contains both nudity and what some might call...foul language. It's Duke, though, so what did you expect?
Is it possible Duke Nukem Forever, a game so close to completion, won't be released? Let's hope not, but until we hear news otherwise -- E3 would be awfully convenient! -- we'll have to make due with the steady series of leaks coming out of former employees.
