If one ever does happen, I hope that whoever is in charge understands what made 3D great and looks to something like Doom or Wolfenstein TNO as inspiration for updating a classic series.

It could just be the old DN redux games returning to Steam and other digital stores. I think we're still a bit off from new, modern games.

Don't care. That series needs to be put to bed. It's a relic at this point and is no longer relevant in the current climate.

Plus if Randy Pitchford has anything to do with it, you know it's going to be trash.

What is Balls of Steel LLC?

Also, the countdown should just preemptively set to 10 years.

There's some other weirdly named LLC that displays in the Borderlands collection. Probably a Randy scheme.

The lucky thing about Gearbox is that they only make you *think* they're developing the game. On release day you find out it's someone else.
yea, remember how "lucky" we got with colonial marines?

I'd like to see what MachineGames could do with that licence.
the mere suggestion of wasting machinegames on trash like duke nukem

I honestly don't think the Duke Nukem character translates into 2016, it is very much a relic of the 90's.
Yeah, but the 90's are coming back strong.

They need to revive the formulas of Duke 1 and 2! We're still in the "retro revival" era of digital distribution so I think a more classic approach could work.

OG Duke is best Duke.

I think Duke himself has the potential to be a PERFECT video game character for 2016. The ultimate satire of the meat headed straight white guy. It would just take some good writing to pull it off, and I don't think Gearbox have those kind of chops.

I hope it's nothing more than a rerelease of the best games on digital platforms, though it's probably unlikely seeing as how the first followers of the Twitter account are part of Gearbox.

At this point I want Duke Nukem to be left alone but as long as they try to make the new game good then I'll be optimistic.
