After the complete fiasco that was Duke Nukem Forever
, it looks like Gearbox are ready to dive into the franchise again and release a new game featuring the same protagonist. During the PAX last weekend, Gearbox Software’s game development chief, Randy Pitchford, hinted at the company’s plans to release their own version of the game at the Gearbox community panel. Seeing how Duke Nukem Forever was in development hell since 1996 and Gearbox Software didn’t have that much time to revamp the game, it was destined to fail; even Pitchford admitted it.
However, props should be given to them for actually finishing the game and pushing it out to the masses instead of passing up on it like the game’s previous developers did. In addition to hinting about a new Duke Nukem game from Gearbox that’s on the way, Pitchford also announced that DLC (downloadable content) for DNF is arriving soon, which should please fans of Duke Nukem. Can the company behind successful first-person shooters like Borderlands and Brothers in Arms make Duke reclaim the throne? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. What do you think?
