Gearbox: “Soon, we’ll talk about the next Duke Nukem”

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford used his company’s panel at PAX Prime to stand defiant against all the naysayers that thought Duke Nukem Forever was better left as vaporware. He admits the game isn’t great, but he hopes that at least some of us had fun with it.

Pitchford also reiterated that the developer isn’t done with Duke. The world’s greatest hero will return someday and while Pitchford wasn’t ready to talk about it yet, he did say that an announcement of a fully gearbox-developed Duke game will be happening soon.

“And then soon… I know that you guys figured out that, when Gearbox acquired the franchise, we didn’t do it just to make sure we could all play Duke Forever, but because we wanted to make our own Duke game. Soon, we’ll talk about that, but not today. [the crowd cheers]”

So with Brothers in Arms: Furious 4, Borderlands 2 and a new Duke Nukem game (possibly the rumored Duke Nukem Begins) it sounds like Gearbox has a lot of balls in the air… let’s hope none of them turn blue.
