Getting your hopes up in the curious case of Duke Nukem has turned out to be a foolish idea so far, as the game’s long awaited sequel lives only in jokes. Until now, that is.
Gearbox, the company behind titles like Borderlands and Brothers in Arms has announced that the company is the proud new owner of Duke Nukem. Apparently, the team is really excited to “pick up and carry the torch and help Duke rise back to glory in his time of need”, although it does seem a bit too dramatic and would make users think Duke’s lost weight, imagination or something else.
Still, that’s not to say we’re not excited as we’re all for the next installment as long as it’s worthy of its name. Thankfully, Gearbox says that it’s ready to “bring the right level of addictively compelling gameplay, humor and high powered explosive action to the franchise. Duke Nukem is back and will be bigger than ever."
