Legal Battle Between 3D Realms and Take-Two Ends in Settlement

                                        Friendship. Friendship? Again?

Finally, the legal woes that have raged on for over the past year between the once great developer and publisher 3D Realms and the publisher Take-Two Interactive has come to an end as of last month.

It’s been said that the two companies settled out of court and the lawsuits have been dropped. The battle started over 3D Realms’ reported failure to release Duke Nukem Forever, and allegedly costing Take-Two millions of dollars in investment. 3DR let go of the development team working on DNF because they couldn’t afford to keep working on it due to funding issues with T2. This is when T2 swooped in with the lawsuit and tried to add insult to injury. 3DR reportedly made a counter-suit though.

Alan Lewis, Take-Two:

“We can confirm that the matter has been resolved, and the company is not providing additional details of the agreement.”

And now this means that Duke Nukem Forever is cleared for release. It’s likely not finished, but there you are. It’s unknown whether T2 will still publish the game.

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
