Duke Nukem is Not Done? Gearbox wants to make More?
How many of you know that Gearbox purchased the Duke Nukem IP? Yeap. Why would someone buy the Duke Nukem IP based off the Fail-Bomb the last version did? Well Randy Pitchford explains Gearbox’s Purchase of Duke Nukem IP in a sit down with IGN.com. It is a long article but you can watch the first 3 minutes of this video to get the overall reason why he picked it up in the first place.
During an interview on IGN’s Up at Noon, Gearbox Software President Randy Pitchford expressed interest in developing more Duke Nukem games. Gearbox bought the rights to Duke Nukem in 2010 when the studio took over the Duke Nukem Forever project, and it’s looking to do even more.
“I willingly and lovingly acquired the brand. When I did that, I wasn’t thinking that the only goal is just to make sure everyone could play Duke Nukem Forever,” Pitchford told IGN. “The real goal for me is I’d like to build a Duke Nukem game again.”
He continued to say, “I think what I would do and what Gearbox would do would be a little different” than Duke Nukem Forever. “I think it would be amazing, and I look forward to that.”
