We Told You So: Gearbox Was Working on a Duke Nukem Game
Last year, we ran an exclusive story about how Gearbox was working on a Duke Nukem game. Thanks to some court documents, which shacknews uncovered, Gearbox was indeed working a brand new Duke Nukem title, called “Duke Begins.” The studio was named by Take-Two‘s counterclaim for the pending lawsuit against 3D Realms.
As of now, Take-Two has announced that Duke Begins has not been cancelled, but “has for the time being been halted.” Basically, the shooter is in limbo and if the lawsuit isn’t straighten out soon — than most likely it will be dropped.
Originally, Duke Begins was scheduled for release sometime in mid-2010, however, if it ever sees the light of day — chances are it will be much later.
