3D Realms is now denying that they received an offer from Take-Two Interactive for the IP of Duke Nukem Forever. Rumors swirled last week that US 30 million was put on the table, but the devs are saying that these are all just that - rumors.
3D Realms co-founder Scott Miller is adamant that no such offer was made. He said that if it really did occur in the first place, they would have taken it "without hesitation" if it would allow them to finish the game. But it's "Not. Even. Close."
Another news that came out last week pertaining to the 3D Realms shut down was Take-Two Interactive (again) also suing the developer for failing to deliver the said game. News had it last week that Take-Two paid Infogrames US 12 million for the publishing rights of Duke Nukem Forever. But the company is adamant that they never received a single penny of that amount.
Said Miller on that allegation, "This, along with so much else, is 100 spin, being eaten up by those who have no clue whatsover."
