Following on from a little trademark drama, it’s been revealed that Apogee Software/3D Realms has been bought out by Interceptor Entertainment. To put that another way, the studio that created Duke Nukem is now owned by the studio that rebooted Rise of the Triad.
Yes, we have indeed acquired Apogee/3D Realms. We will be giving an official statement tomorrow.
With this acquisition, we aim to strengthen 3D Realms and protect the legend that it is. The brand itself is very valuable, and we want to ensure the survival and return to the level at which it is renowned.
Apogee and 3D Realms will continue to be based in Texas, USA, while new parent Interceptor works out of Herning, Denmark. All three companies are involved in the teased Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction, currently under a legal cloud.
