Duke Nukem Again?

Art by Olly Moss

Like many of us, I have fond memories of handing strippers a folded piece of cash and hearing, “Shake it baby!”

Also, like many of us, I played Duke Nukem. When I heard that Duke Nukem Forever was being canceled I wasn’t disappointed. It was the outcome I had expected. I’m sure most people would have been more surprised if it had come out. Well prepare to have your hopes dashed one more time because a new rumor is making the rounds that the guys behind 2009’s FP-RPS (First Person Role-Playing Shooter) Borderlands, Gearbox Studios, are picking up where 3D Realms left off. This isn’t the craziest rumor I’ve heard though.

Take-Two still has the rights to the Duke Nukem franchise and Gearbox was supposed to be making a spin-off Duke Begins earlier in the year. Gearbox’s president Randy Pitchford neither confirmed nor denied this, but implied that he will be able to clarify at PAX Prime 2010 in a couple weeks.
