Miller: We never saw T2′s $12 million

Saturday, 16th May 2009 07:12 GMT By Patrick Garratt


3D Realms boss Scott Miller’s said the developer never saw the $12 million Take-Two’s claiming was dropped on the failed development of Duke Nukem Forever.

“No. We didn’t get a penny of that money,” said the exec, talking in this Shacknews comments thread.

“This, along with so much else, is 100 percent spin, being eaten up by those who have no clue whatsoever.”

Take-Two claims that it is owed “millions of dollars” by 3D Realms for breaking an agreement to finish the game.

The publisher also requested a copy of the existing Duke Nukem Forever source and object code “to ensure the code is preserved and remains unharmed during the pendency of this lawsuit.”

    The Duke stole the money and blew it all on steroids and rent-boys… Where he then blew alot of other stuff.

    Well somebody has a big fat account with a discrete Cayman bank. But even if the developer didn’t get the money, they still got paid for 12 years to deliver absolutely fuck all. Wouldn’t we all love a gig like that?

    I’m sure it’s not as black and white as that, tbh. Although yeah, 12 years is crazy mental.
