Does that mean Gearbox is finishing the game? Perhaps. Does that mean someone else might be finishing it? Also perhaps.

What I find interesting is that after all this time IF it is being finished it is likely being done with limited input from the 3DRealms people who struggled to get it this far. Was DNF done enough that another team can fill in the gaps sufficiently without losing out on the Duke feel?

At the end of the day however Duke Nukem Forever may create the birth of a new term. What exactly do we call vaporware that pulls itself back together, gets released, and rocks?
Gaming Messiah?

Honestly we could get news before PAX. Randy Pitchford said they just may be able to clarify the situation there. So a news release by Scott Miller or something could take precedence.

Re: Rumor: Borderlands Studio Reviving Duke Nukem Forever
Interesting news indeed. It's even on trade sites like MCV, and they don't report on hokey-pokey stuff. What is even more interesting (if this is not completely bogus, of course) is:

"Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford declined to comment to Kotaku on the matter, indicating that he may be able to better clarify the situation further at this year's Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle."

Now, to even suggest something as clarification of the situation clearly points to some involvement. Whether or not it is about Duke Nukem Forever or Duke Begins or something completely different (acquisition of 3D Realms for example) can be discussed.

To have George not comment on the situation was expected, but it starting to get a bit weird. George is to the gaming industry what Area 51 is to USA. Anyhow, I'm glad for these news, they were very much needed.

Gearbox has been my top choice for finishing the game for a long time now. Glad to see it's pretty much confirmed. I'm especially glad that a lot of former 3dr guys are still at Gearbox and are now getting to finish what they started.

Bring it on!

No matter what you think of Smart, I'm sure he's connected in the industry. I'd tend to think he's not bullshitting.

What many people are missing about the Kotaku blurb is that Take 2 said that they will still distribute the game. That's the first comment they've made since the end of the lawsuit and basically confirms the game is indeed alive(if all 3 of you out there thought it was still dead).

Well, the fact that you speculated Duke is back practically every month, it's not surprising that you eventually predicted "correctly."

This is becoming really interesting.

You're probably right. The brain says this is all bs, but my gut tells me it's probably on the level. This time frame fits, being near their last chance to salvage what they had and not miss their obsolescence window.

I'm actually looking forward to release more for the possibility of an honest development postmortem than I am for playing the game.

At least this speculation has a source to draw from. I'd say it's fine. The DNF section is getting less and less active anyways so what can it hurt? We haven't gotten much else to talk about. At least we aren't pulling this stuff out of the blue, and there's a couple of sites to back the speculation.

Definitely not saying that I think all this is true, because given DNF's track record, I wouldn't be surprised if it is just a false rumor, but this certainly is bigger than anything we've seen since the court case went out.

This may very well end up being the first commercial release with a credits roll longer than the actual gameplay itself.

Great news indeed!



to Damien: are you crazy? well, duke has been the epitome of gaming for as long as I can remember...waiting 13 years for a new experience, and this could finally be it! those were all good games, I must coincide with you on that matter, but to want them more than THE Duke Nukem Forever...why, in my mind, that is purely blasphemy!

I've been to the point since like 2002 that I have not been truly excited by a new release unless it was involving Duke. kinda sad really, but he is gaming for me...that, and most recently Deadly Premonition...:P

Hail to the king baby...right Zach?

IF true, good news.
I am also not very sure about the developers.
They havent put out anything resembling Duke, comedy wise, interactive wise, or really unreality wise.
I can only concur with a previous poster about IF they are actually completing it, I hope it was 95% done already.

Sorry but nobody is going to release a game without a several month (at least) pre-release hype period.

Edit:

Personally I would take DNF over just about any game imaginable. But I don't think this(if true) will have any impact on any other Gearbox game other than maybe Duke Begins.

hmm...is it just me...or has the past 13 years been a pre-release hype period? :P

I think they know they need to get the game out before a duke fan snaps and goes postal.

It's time to shine Nukem!

[EDIT] Oh, and by the way, I would DEF trade any game for DNF...even if it was just the betas! Immagine the history?
