Took them way too long to make this happen.
It didn't take this long because they were sitting on their hands the whole time. George Broussard wanted this game to be absolutely perfect, but it caused him to constantly make revisions. So it's not like 3D Realms was procrastinating, it's that they were doing way more fine tuning than they should have. And while they were doing that, the times went and changed. Engines had to be replaced with the newer ones, you can't have it looking like they finished in '98. Havok and ragdoll physics made themselves known. Popular mechanics came and went. So they weren't just trying to make the perfect game, they also had to adapt it to modern tech...a few times over. The same problem plagued Daikatana, but then they rushed at the end, and we all know how that went.
