Everyone knows the legend of Duke Nukem Forever. Announced way back in 1997, occasionally teased since, and ready “when it’s done”. You may also remember that, last year, development on the project was officially halted, with the team being let go after more than twelve years on the project.
Now 2K are teasing “something big” for PAX – and it could well be the return of the Duke.
On Wednesday, the 2K Games blog updated with a post titled “Something Big is Happening at PAX”. “That’s right… something big is going to happen at the 2K Games Booth this PAX – and we want to share it with everyone – whether or not you are at the show,” reads the post.
“We’ll be streaming the first day of PAX live from our booth and giving you exclusive access to everything we’re doing – and it’s going to be AWESOME.”
Of course, it could be absolutely anything, but a series of recent hints suggest that it could be time for Mr Nukem to return to action. Borderlands developer Gearbox Software, previously revealed to be working on a Duke Nukem Begins spin-off, has been rumoured to have taken over development on the long-awaited title, and studio head Randy Pitchford told Kotaku earlier in the year that he might be able to “better clarify the situation” at the Penny Arcade Expo, which starts today.
Either way, we’ll find out what 2K’s “something big” is at some point today. So fingers crossed that Forever might actually be out before the end of the world.
