So, do you guys remember the Duke Nukem game 3DRealms had lined up? Looks like Duke Nukem Mass Destruction might be going forward without the good ol’ Dukester after all.
This might be due to the pending litigation between 3DRealms and Gearbox over the rights to Duke’s name.
Why would 3DRealms do this? They simply may not want to tie up development with the license. Dropping Duke from this game does not necessarily mean they’ve given up on their rights to him. We’ll make sure to keep you up to date on the rights to the Duke and development on this game.
