Randy Pitchford hoping to bring something different to the Duke Nukem series in the future
Randy Pitchford, boss of Gearbox studios has been giving some hints as to how they want to proceed with the Duke Nukem series in the future.
Gearbox secured the classic shooter IP from its original developer 3D Realms when the studio collapsed under the weight of mounting development costs for Duke Nukem Forever.
Pitchford, who worked on the Atomic Edition of Duke Nukem 3D, said "I willingly and lovingly acquired the brand. When I did that, I wasn't thinking that the only goal is just to make sure everyone could play Duke Nukem Forever. The real goal for me is Id like to build a Duke Nukem game again. I think what I would do and what Gearbox would do would be a little different than Duke Nukem Forever. I think it would be amazing, and I look forward to that."
Gearbox managed the impressive feat of actually releasing the perennially delayed Duke Nukem Forever in June of last year to a rather mixed critical reception. Despite this the game did do rather well commercially and both Gearbox and publisher 2K Games have previously made noises about doing more Duke Nukem in the future.
