Take-Two is suing Apogee’s 3D Realms over the development of Duke Nukem Forever.The publishing giant alleges that Apogee (unrelated to the Apogee developing Duke Nukem Trilogy, which is essentially a licensed name) breached the agreement to develop Duke Nukem Forever, reports Bloomberg.”Apogee continually delayed the development for the Duke Nukem Forever,” Take-Two says in the 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.”3D Realms – here referred to under its legal name of Apogee Software, Ltd. – closed down last week, with Take-Two retaining the publishing rights to Duke Nukem Forever.Take-Two also says that in 2000, it had an agreement with Apogee and paid $12 million USD for the publishing rights to Duke Nukem Forever. In 2007, the companies entered into a second agreement.The case is taking place at the New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan.
