3D Realms sues Gearbox over unpaid royalties

The original developer of critical flop Duke Nukem Forever is suing Gearbox for over $2m.

PCGamesN reports that the claims relate to royalties the studio claims remain unpaid following Gearbox’s acquisition of the Duke Nukem Forever rights in 2010.

As well as the missing cash 3D Realms reckons that Gearbox has also blocked independent audit of the royalties they’ve earned on the game, despite them being legally entitled to do so.

Gearbox has completely refuted the claim.
