Gearbox Rebooting Duke Nukem Franchise

Tom's Hardware reports:

The October 2011 edition of the Official Xbox Magazine reports that Gearbox Software plans to "reboot" the Duke Nukem franchise once Aliens: Colonial Marines is complete and out the door. The series, which began back in 1991 with the original Duke Nukem PC game developed by Apogee Software, will relaunch "with the long-discussed Duke Begins" on an unspecified date.

Thanks Sithodah!

I hope no one will ever release a game called "Duke Begins". What a terrible title.

It's probably just a working title, Gearbox hasn't even begun (lol) working on it..

And if they're rebooting the Duke franchise, they've got the freedom to do whatever they feel fitting, no '3D Realms vision' to keep in mind like with DNF. Hmm, don't know if that's a good or a bad thing.

The article it's missing some pieces. Duke Begins was named during the court battle between TTWO and Apogee, so it seems, Gearbox was working on it parallel to DNF development. Now it's going to be the next Duke game, I wonder who will wait for that.

What I wonder is if they have any work on the game at all. Because they had worked on it before the lawsuit issue with 3DR.

Hoooo what a surprise! Let's hope they won't change our Duke too much!
