An End 

Duke Nukem is a computer game that had become a laughingstock in the gaming world. The once popular game had its new series under development since 1997. Year after year since then, there was a promise that the new version, Duke Nukem Forever, was going to appear. It never did, and now, according to reports, the company has shut down.

There was never any good reason for why the new version failed to appear. For several years, the game won a mock "vaporware" award given to companies that promised but failed to deliver software. The company and game are a case study in loss of reputation and credibility. Maybe someday, an enterprising journalist will write it and let the world know why the company was unable to produce a second version.
