The longest one I know was The Legend of Dragoon, 3 years! But it's well worth the wait. It's such a great game I still play it now! Don't post Duke Nukem Forever, this game's never gonna come out.

How long did it take for id to develop Doom 3?
Aug 27 2004, 05:22 PM
I think I heared a while back that they started metal gear solid when the psx was announced. not sure how long it was between psx release date and MGS release date tho
PSX released in 1995
MGS Release Date: September 30, 1998Here
they say Metal Gear Solid was four years in development.

When I read the topic title, I automatically thought of Duke, but you already beat me to the punch.

Four years, I think.
Warcraft III (PC) took about 4-5 years or so. Daikitana (sp?) took forever too.

You can never really tell. 7 years for Max Payne, how do you know they constantly worked on it or how much time per day they put into it. I think we wont know until some one finds out how many man hours went into making it.
How was halo being developed for several platforms if it's solely for the xbox?
Aug 27 2004, 10:48 PM
As Halo wasn`t originally going to come out for the x-box. Shenmue is the longest i know.

Halo was originally being developed for the Mac, before MS bought out Bungie.
