Duke Nukem, IT Project Failures, Video Games
Wired Magazine has put together a comprehensive look into what went wrong with Duke Nukem Forever’s development, detailing how what should have been a home run became one of the most infamous cases of vaporware ever through a series of mismanagement steps and missed deadlines.
The primary culprits?
- A generous budget
- An unclear destination
- Endless pursuit of the latest bright shiny objects
- An understaffed team
Have you seen these factors de-rail any IT projects? I’d love to hear in the comments, or privately at Michael@ITKnowledgeExchange.com. Hopefully the Duke’s sad demise can save others the same fate.
