Duke Nukem Forever Being Worked on By Gearbox?


It appears that now the Take 2/3D Realms lawsuit has been settled, Gearbox may have talked into working on perennial no-show, once canceled Duke Nukem Forever.

Quote:
Duke Nukem Forever, according to sources who wished to remain anonymous, is now in the hands of Gearbox and is planned to be released under the studio's name. Gearbox was outed as the developer of the apparently scrapped Duke Nukem spin-off Duke Begins earlier this year.

Take-Two Interactive still maintains publishing rights to the title, which the company confirmed to Kotaku tonight. (A company spokesperson declined to comment about the status of the Duke Nukem Forever project and whether it is in the works at Gearbox.)

One source indicated that a playable demo of Duke Nukem Forever will be available later this year.
How's that Colonial Marines coming along?

This game is as relevant as Lindsey Lohan. I'm going to say that everytime I see a story about Duke Nukem.

Here's an exercise, throughout the article, whenever you see Duke Nukem, say in your head "Lindsey Lohan".

Notice that the brain doesn't really care either way.

To me, Lindsey Lohan is still the stupid hot chick from Mean Girls. She will never change....in my head.

I just don't see how this can proceed without the amazing management skillz of George B. I mean, who is going to eat all that pizza?

Duke Nukem Forever is like that hot chick girlfriend that won't put out. You go to the point where you're all AAAAAAAARG I DON'T CARE ANYMORE!!! - and maybe you really don't, but when she stands there nekkid n' ready you can bet your sorry ass you forget all about the waiting and just jump right in to action... Duke-style.

Wouldn't it be awesome if it came out and sold in the millions?
Take-two asks Gearbox to do another one and it takes them 13 years to finish it?!

If it's a good game, I will buy it. The stills I saw looked pretty cool

Maybe gamers angry over the years of delays/broken promises will just torrent the hell out of this game just to tell G.B. a big FUCK YOU.

If good ol' GeorgeB throws a hissy fit over this, if it's true, Gearbox Software and Take2 should just tell him to shut up and become a professional poker player in New Vegas.

Hey, if it's true and Gearbox does finish Duke Nukem Forever, it would be great. I would check it out for sure.

I don't care how stupid-long the game was in development just to become vaporware. When and if it hits, I will most certainly consider picking it up if it's good. It's practically a piece of gaming history at this point.

Well this is good news if it's true. Broussard seemed to confirm the game isn't canceled, when a month ago someone asked and he said

And here's a couple other quotes, just pure speculation but we can hope...

Scott Miller:

Good news ahead this year...
Randy Pitchford:
Quote:
"I've started a new project. It's big. It's, like, 'look-at-our-line-up-and-imagine-something-even-bigger' kind of big. I'm directing it myself. I can't mention it publicly yet. When you find out what this is, you'll likely agree that I can't oversell this one."

If 3D Realms is making any money from this whatsoever, I will not be purchasing it.

I'd go so far as saying that it pretty much is THE piece of gaming history, period.

To hardcore gamers in the know, DNF will always have a special place. It's the girl that treats you like such shit but you can't let go of.

They need to replace the Duke model with a model of Randy Pitchford, that would be awesome ^_^

I love the idea of a DNF heavily influenced by Borderlands. MAINSTREAMED!
