It seems Duke Nukem Forever might actually exist after all, with Swedish middleware developer Meqon announcing today it has been selected by 3D Realms to provide the physics engine for the game.

Meqon's physics engine offers enhanced physics for characters and vehicles, as well as basic rigid body simulation.

"We evaluated several physics SDK's and Meqon was really fast, had the cleanest interface and integrated into our game very quickly," said George Broussard, CEO of 3D Realms.

"With its advanced feature set, we feel confident that Meqon's next generation physics engine can help us create the next generation of action games," he added.
