The rumour mill is well and truly grinding away today as Kotaku are claiming that sources who wish to remain anonymous have contacted them claiming that not only is Duke Nukem Forever back on, but Borderlands developer Gearbox Software is in charge of development. You may remember that Gearbox was outed earlier this year as the developer behind ‘Duke Begins’ – before everything got a bit messy.
As you might expect, there has been a verbal brick wall of ‘no comments’ – however Take-Two Interactive has confirmed it still maintains publishing rights to the title.
Gearbox Software President Randy Pitchford has declined to comment on the matter, but has indicated that he may be able to better clarify the situation at this year’s Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle.
So, this is very much a rumour for now – but if the Duke was to make a return, would any of you be interested?
