The investment group behind Interceptor Entertainment, SDN Invest, has announced that they have acquired Apogee/3D Realms, the developer/publisher responsible for franchises like Duke NukemCommander Keen and Rise of the Triad. The acquisition comes in the midst of an ongoing dispute between Interceptor and Gearbox Software over an as-yet unannounced Duke Nukem title believed to be in development at Interceptor.

Speaking to Eurogamer today, new 3D Realms CEO Mike Nielsen shed some light on plans for the company going forward. 3D Realms will operate as a publishing arm, handling releases developed by Interceptor, both using existing intellectual property acquired as part of the purchase and developing new properties.

As for the lawsuit against Interceptor? Nielsen seemed unfazed, saying, “Our only message is we're not all out of gum yet.”
