3D Realms never received any of the $12 million that Take-Two is suing the company for, 3D Reamls' co-founder Scott Miller told Shacknews today.


3D Realms "didn't get a penny of that [$12 million]," according to Miller. "This, along with so much else, is 100% spin, being eaten up by those who have no clue whatsoever."

Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. filed a breach of contract suit against Apogee Software Ltd. this week in a Manhattan Court over the developer's "continually delayed" Duke Nukem sequel. Details of the suit were not disclosed in a report by Bloomberg, nor has the New York County Civil Court provided specifics about the damages Take-Two is seeking.

Take-Two also says they invested more than $12 million in the game.

So they recieved no money from their publisher for funding and we're only hearing about this now that they're faced with a lawsuit. If I was developing a game for a publisher and wasn't getting funding for the game (especially if that game was in development hell for years), I'm sure as hell going to be vocal abou it before I get shut down.

Maybe it's just me but there's something fishy about this. It'll be interesting to see how it turns out and what get's revealed through this case.
