New Duke Nukem Game To Be Revealed 'Soon'

Kotaku is reporting that during Gearbox's PAX panel, Randy Pitchford announced a new Duke Nukem game will be revealed 'soon'

Quote:
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.

Already? By god, they're acting way too eager on this one. What, did they co-develop the games side by side, sheesh.

If anything, they were probably in talks for a long time while buying Duke, and started working on the new game a while ago.

Maybe used an old engine they had, or used the engine given to them and just had to plug in some pieces and have something for us.

Seems fast, but in todays business world, anything is possible.

They were already creating a game called "Duke Begins" a couple years ago, I bet that's what they'll end up releasing.

If anything, they used that as a selling point to acquire the rights to the Duke name.

Please Gearbox, put your efforts towards Colonial Marines first!

Both Aliens and Duke are going to be absolutely excellent. Everything Gearbox touches is gold.

I agree. They will be good games. They may not appeal to everyone, or will miss on some little points, but they will be good games.

Both franchises are in good hands.

I wonder if they will use the old engine or a new one.

Still need to check the new Duke, which everyone is complaining and I'm waiting for the Steam sales.

I heard a long time ago that Gearbox wasn't even developing Colonial Marines, that it was their contract and they subbed it out to some no-name firm.

I'm not holding my breath for that one.

If Gearbox touches shit, it becomes gold? What happened to DNF then?

Do it quick Gearbox before Duke himself becomes more irrelevant.
