El33t Question of the Week: Should Gearbox work on Duke Nukem, or its own projects?

"This past week, an amazing piece of news emerged: The long-suffering, oft-delayed, 12-years in the making first-person shooter Duke Nukem Forever will in fact see the light of day thanks to Gearbox Software (Borderlands, Brothers in Arms).

The studio struck a deal with Duke Nukem franchise creators and developers 3D Realms and has not only picked up where that company left off on Duke Nukem Forever, aiming to deliver a completed game sometime in 2011, but Gearbox has also acquired the intellectual property rights to the brand as well."

gearbox owns the DUKE IP...

OliverKO2990d ago

you're correct, and the acquisition is mentioned in the article, but that's a relatively recent development.

Should Gearbox have taken on development of Duke Nukem Forever at all?

the owner of gearbox was friends with 3d realms and offered them a lifeline to finish it, 2k accepted this and put the game in gearboxes hand, they got the survivors from 3drealms who wanted to keep working on it and hired them in

duke gets a new home in one of the most forward thinking companys

3drealms stays together as part of gearbox

they get jobs and duke and everyone is happy

I'm quite sure they are probably working on at least 3, if not 4 projects right now. I enjoyed the old Duke Nukem games at the time but I don't seem to hold a lot of nostalgia for them like some people do. I probably wont be checking this game out, but who knows. I'm interested to see what they do with Aliens since the last one was a bit of a disappointment, and more Borderlands would be good. Hopefully they take some hints from Firefall for the new one, add some more gear instead of just thousands of random useless weapons.
