The last time we saw Duke was in the quite derided Duke Nukem Forever, which took almost forever to release after being revealed. A few years ago there was an announcement for Duke Nukem Mass Destruction, but that game didn’t appear since 3DRealms didn’t get permission from Gearbox to create a new game using the IP. It looks like Gearbox is making its own new game and isn’t quite ready to retire Duke Nukem as a countdown has begun teasing something related to the franchise.
Along with the countdown a new Twitter account with the handle DukeNukemgame has appeared, with the kind of tweets you would expect to see from Duke Nukem.
-Handling Massive Explosives
-Repopulating the Earth
-Doing that trick your Mom likes https://t.co/pAzbAMRGTF

Yes it is mostly like that. Anyway I guess we’ll find out in just over a week what Gearbox has in store for Duke Nukem.
