Gearbox to Announce New Duke Nukem Game ‘Soon’

At last weekend’s PAX Prime, Gearbox head Randy Pitchford teased the crowd when talking about their acquisition of the Duke Nukem franchise saying that their team was ready to announce a new Duke Nukem game “soon.”

Pitchford, at the Gearbox Community Panel, told the crowed, “I know that you guys figured out that, when Gearbox acquired the franchise, we didn’t do it just to make sure we could all play Duke Forever, but because we wanted to make our own Duke game, soon, we’ll talk about that, but not today.”

Duke Nukem Forever was obviously a sub-par game, especially for Gearbox, but the franchise is still beloved by many, and starting fresh may be just what the King needs.
