Randy Pitchford, who is the president of developer Gearbox, has stated that his company would be interested in working on the Duke Nukem franchise again.
Speaking to IGN he said, “I think what I would do and what Gearbox would do would be a little different. I think it would be amazing, and I look forward to that.”
The Duke Nukem series was hugely influential for the development of the shooter space, introducing humor to it for the first time.
Unfortunately, Duke Nukem Forever, which was under development for more than ten years, was widely criticized when it was launched in 2011.
Gearbox only finished the game which was under development for a long time at 3D Realms.
The developer is now getting ready to launch Borderlands 2, the sequel to their much praised Pandora-based shooter, and the company is also working on Aliens: Colonial Marines, a team-based shooter with a multiplayer component, and on Brother in Arms: Furious 4.
