Duke Nukem Forever... Let's see. The last we heard on 3D Realms' eternally-in-development sequel was back in July
when a scan of a supposedly in-game screenshot hit the internet.
This followed an image of a pig-thing in May
appearing alongside a job ad, 3DR's George Broussard explaining it was a "Real-time in game asset... Taken from a game level with a dark background, on purpose, because we wanted to focus attention on the character."
Anyway, the latest rumours to just surface on DNF are suggesting that the game will hit some time next year and that we'll see new announcements on it from 3D Realms at major game expos in 2008.
Reported on website GameGuru, rumour continues that "an insider" has let slip that 3DR has made "significant progress" with the game on PC and that development has picked up pace in the last 12 months.
"The game's look is supposed to be completely over the edge with tons of stuff returning from the original series (Shrink ray and Nuke button rumored to be confirmed)," the site adds, and, "The gameplay is being pepped up with attitude, killing a mutated pig with a 8 ball stick never felt so good, a console version is also being planned upon simultaneously..."
Hmm, yes, well. We'll file this in our rumour draw for now but whip it back out and shake it in your face if it proves to be on the money.
