    Rest assured, the game will be out. When is the question though, my guess is just in time for Christmas 2004.

    My guess is that they've decided to go with an anti-hype approach. Now people will be interested in the game due to morbid curiousity (much like Daikatana).

    Well, DroneZ did finally come out a short while ago, and that started development around the time of Duke. Can't be too much longer now.

    For those who don't know about DNF..It went into development 6 months before hl1 was released. This game will be almost a decade old when it's released. Erm, when it's "suppose" to be released. Brussard said "it's a definate for winter of 2001." and well we're winter of 2003 without a screenshot of the godamn game in the last 4 years.

    If I read a reivew which says "The problem with this game is that it is just too short" then I will have to chuckle :)

    didn't it go from the quake 2 engine to the unreal engine ? God if they are still using the unreal engine this game is going to look very bad. Mabye the push back was because they upgraded to the unreal warfare engine hehe

    Nah, that wouldn't make sense, moving to the unreal warfare engine would've meant that the programmers and artist could have continued using pretty much the same tools. I think they rather switched to another engine, maybe Lithtech or something even more obscure, in order to have to re-learn everything. Where's the challenge otherwise? :lol:

    lets face it... its dead if its out 2005.

    It looked great 2000 or whenever the Video was released, but if they release this game 5 Years later its just old.

    maybe they'll switch to the Doom 3 Engine ;)

    Broussard was recently on 3DR's board defending the game's development length, citing Doom 3 as a 4-year game and HL2 as a 5-year title. What he failed to note is that these other teams also wrote their own engines instead of licensing existing ones, and are still able to bring a completed game to the market in less time.

    I think this game at least deserves our admiration for the best-chosen video game title of all times...

    Do you think it will have a Glide renderer ?
