Take-Two Suing Apogee Software Over 'Duke Nuke Forever'

The Search for Duke Nukem

The Duke Nukem Forever situation just got a little more complicated. Bloomberg is reporting that Take-Two Interactive has filed suit against Apogee Software over the demise of Duke Nukem Forever, a consequence of 3D Realms closing this month.

“Apogee continually delayed the completion date for the Duke Nukem Forever [project],” Take-Two wrote in their court complaint. “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.”

Even though Take-Two was not funding the development of Duke Nukem Forever, the publishing rights weren't free. Take-Two reportedly paid $12 million to secure Duke Nukem Forever in 2000, but another deal was brokered in 2007, around the time 3D Realms indicated the project has been successfully rebooted.

It doesn't sound like Take-Two cares if Duke Nukem Forever is ever released, but its definitely interested in getting its $12 million and change back.
