3D Realms May Be All Out Of Gum

SkiifGeek writes "It's only early, but a single, uncorroborated source has claimed that 3D Realms has been shut down. The problem with a single source report is that the other information at this time doesn't match up with what Shacknews is claiming. The forums where the claim is apparently corroborated are struggling under traffic at the moment and it leaves the possibility that the whole thing is a hoax, backed up by a possibly hacked forum account.

Other sources of information on the net that are also reporting on the claim all point back to Shacknews as the only source material, so we're all going to have to wait until 3D Realms, Take Two, or 2K Games make a formal announcement that one of the gamer's most favourite publishers of the 1990s is no more."
