How Duke Nukem Forever Was Brought Back To Life

Kotaku: The revival of Duke Nukem Forever in Seattle at the Penny Arcade Expo may be the most stunning comeback story in video game history. In an interview with Kotaku, Randy Pitchford, the man instrumental in Duke's return, explained how Duke came back from the dead.

The story is too old to be commented.

If its a successful game Gearbox fan-base will grow and they will be labeld as heros for saving the franchise,

If the game sucks Gearbox will be crucified by both fans and media for messing up a legend.

Not sure I would want this responsibility on my plate because people are expecting allot from a game thats been delayed since 1997 - some of those expectations that the hardcore fans have, would have been better realized on the PS4 or the Xbox 720.

but to be honest Gearbox is one of those developers that can pull it off - the other developers that would do this game justice is R* and Insomniac.

like what are they expecting of this game exactly?

Can you imagine back in 1996 playing Duke Nukem 3D which got an average rating of 9/10 and then a year later have Duke Nukem Forever announced - expectation were very high both in gameplay and graphics. Here is a link with the Duke Forever time line:

So anything less that was expected back them would be doing the true fans of DUke a dishonor.

amazing read, it's really hard to comprehend the development process this game undertook and how it got resurrected.
