It's still just a rumor - but of all the rumors around here, this is the first one I'd be willing to bet on - for several reasons.

I am with you on the importance of T2 still being in the picture. But I think it only reinforces the fact that this will reach inevitable resolve.

Until there is something more concrete, I would suggest lurking like I still do until solid info comes out.

Re: Rumor: Gearbox Reviving Duke Nukem Forever
There will never be an official statement until it's DONE, or at least very close to. George has learned, he showed us with WID as release date
Why confirm that it's in development... to disappoint again when it gets "canceled" again?

Duke Nukem Re: Rumor: Gearbox Reviving Duke Nukem Forever
When the team was let go in May of 09, the game was a year away from completion. We know this because the release date was to be April 2010.

Unless Gearbox is just going to cut a metric
Shit ton of material. I believe there's
still actual content that needs to be
created and programmed in.

Then beta testing, the marketing plans,,,
It starts to add time.

Logic dictates the game is still a year
out, especially if Gearbox just made the deal.



All aboard the hype train baby!!

If I say "Duke Nukem Forever is coming out today" everyday until it comes out, then I would eventually correct.

Fact is, I'd be wrong the many, MANY times I made terrible guesses before, but I'd eventually get it.

Didn't the source also claimed that Gearbox started work right after the layoffs in May 2009? It would be done by now
And even if Gearbox started in November 2009 like Duke's FB indicated with Duke being back in the game or somethin like this, DNF can still make it for December this year!

As an insider said on the shack:

Re: Rumor: Gearbox Reviving Duke Nukem Forever
This rumor is probably true

EVERYTHING MAKES SENSE

-Gearbox was teased before , in "fan made" trailers ,teasers there was Gearbox logo movie.

-Gearbox Software is very close to 3DRealms offices , former Plano, latter Garland, both in Dallas area , ~10 miles apart.

Gearbox seems to not be so busy as ID software is which GB already asked and they were turned down , being busy with their own projects , ofcourse , Doom 4, Rage , ID Tech 5 ... etc, big big stuff.

Gearbox , was previously doing Duke games so this is just mere "deal extension" , so the developer was having a duke nukem team and it's not a big deal as if you would start a new deal right now.

Gearbox are private small developers but quite evolved and are great, 170 employees is surely more than 3Drealms had , and they're the best CHOICE; Valve (steam= DRM) and Epic became selfish , Activision total crap , don't even mention EA , ID software busy , ... there were other choices but Gearbox fits and that is very close to garlad is a huge plus , i think GB also pays a visit to direct the game of course he won't let somebody screw it at the bit end.


Released under Gearbox name is a bit weird , OFCOURSE there will be 3DREALMS LOGOS and !!!!!!

Of course there will be a 3D Realms Logo it's their game.

Sure take two owns the publishing rights but 3D Realms own the I.P.

Besides it is all 3D Realms from the ground up, they just need some

former (Key) employees to put it all together.

3D Realms is Duke Nukem, you can't have a Duke Game without the 3DRealms Logo. otherwise it'll be a shite version.

Exactly.
This is a RUMOR, while probably one of the most solid sounding ones in a long time... it's still just a rumor. Word of mouth. Nothing has been confirmed, made official.... nothing.

Things have not changed. It has always been, and still is "Unless confirmed by George or Scott... take it with a grain of salt. Don't trust any rumors related to DNF."
This is not the first time a game site (yes, even IGN and other "reliable" game sites have reported false rumors related to DNF in the past) has run a story about DNF only for it to come up as a rumor later on.

Now, I'm not saying this couldn't be true... but, until it is officially confirmed your reaching at strings and trying to say it's a rope that could save you from falling.
If we've waited 13 years, what's another month? Randy said he would comment on it at PAX, lets wait until PAX and then go from there.

Because it draws attention to Gearbox. Who knows, they could be revealing Aliens, or even Borderlands 2..... and this kind of media attention draws far more attention to any presentation Gearbox is doing at PAX.

It's not uncommon for studios to use false news to draw attention to their own projects.

I think you may have to wait till PAX for that one. I could come up with several reasons behind that quote both for and against DNF being made by them.

As fans you seek out the most positive prediction you can come up with when rumors like these surface. It is of course only natural... however you really shouldn't hold your breath.

Now I'm not confirming or denying the possibility that this rumor is true I am simply saying that I - like everyone else - don't know. It could go both ways... you just don't know... so everyone speculates.

DNF is the definition of speculation.

Yeah, we are simply trying to avoid threads being created when for say magazines have articles saying things like, "The legend returns... next issue!" and people assume it could be DNF. Stuff like that... this kind of stuff where articles actually relate to DNF are ok for discussion as there is actually something related to it to actually discuss.

But thanks for that, I'll consider making it more clear in the FAQ for the next revision.

The same thing has happened to Prey, 3D realms couldn't finish it so they handed it to another studio, and they finished it in a short time span.
And didn't Scott Miller mention: "Good news ahead this year"? Is this the good news, or is it the PAX news? You decide.

Anyway I am really excited for this, finally after 13 (Maybe 14, if its released next year) years, we are finally getting Duke Nukem Forever. Just imagine the day we see DNF on shelves.

Dont get to far ahead of yourself there... it good to be positive but you have to be a little cautious when it comes to DNF considering how many rumors have been and gone.

Ahh... sort of true. PREY was shelved back in 1990s. At that time 3DRealms were working on Blood, Shadow Warrior, DNF and PREY... they sold Blood to Monolith, shelved PREY and finished SW then focused on DNF.

In 2002 PREY was revived, with development being taken over by Human Head with 3DRealms producing. The game was released in 2006, a four year development cycle. Not really a "short time span".

Re: Rumor: Gearbox Reviving Duke Nukem Forever
Well, if it's true that Gearbox are working on DNF, then that will mean Duke is going to come out in lets say, well if its true that they started work after 3D realms stopped, then its possible that we will see DNF in Mid 2011. Maybe on a blue moon we will see Duke this year (as in Release) , we have a 50/50 chance then.

But, we will see no delays (Unless a Duketard goes "Overboard", and proceeds to sneak into Gearbox and delete every file of DNF in existence), Gearbox have made very good games, such as:

Half Life: Opposing Force
Halo Combat evolved PC version
Borderlands
Just to name a few. Lets just hope that it Duke gets out onto Shelves.

Damien, I thought PREY was started in 1999, I saw some game-play of it on youtube, of George showing someone some Test levels. It looked really good, I couldn't believe what type of stuff they were trying to incorporate into it.

Re: Rumor: Gearbox Reviving Duke Nukem Forever
Personally, I feel Gearbox's best games are Borderlads, and the Brothers in Arms series (specially Hell's Highway).
I've always said any studio that could take over a Duke game would either be Gearbox or Monolith. If they were still around, Ritual would have been the perfect choice. Sad to see them go after only one episode of SiN: Episodes.

PREY originally started development in 1995 (with work beginning on the engine, storyline and such). And after a few years of problems with the team and getting the tech solid... it looked like it was really coming together.

But in mid/late 1999 the game was put on "hold" and shelved. Technically it was very late in 2001 when development began again on PREY with Human Head behind the wheel. But the original build of the game from the 90s is gone.
