So will Take-Two do anything with the Duke Nukem IP?

So will Take-Two do anything with the Duke Nukem IP?
Or is it just gonna be doing some 30th anniversary stuff for DN3D published by 2k and maybe whoring him out to Fortnite or whatever?

        I will laugh if the first thing they do is taking down the DNF2001 modding community infested by discordites.
        Greaseball Randy goes on twitter and makes a "I dindu nuffin" post, blaming TakeTwo

    Also random but trying to find anything interesting other than "Take-Two owns this IP now," like commentary from the newly independent Saber/3D Realms, is apparently GFuel still exists and did a collab.

      It's pretty good tbh, orange-ade kinda, sunny-d style thing. Better than gamersupps diarrhea cumbubble flavors.

    A complete Duke collection would be cool. It could include all the usual games and ports of all the console exclusive ones. Merch wise, I want a new Duke action figure. The one from 97 is still the best.

      Something kinda like that exists, but it was made as a collab with some emulation box that takes proprietary cartridges.

        I was just wondering why they didn't just dump this shit on Switch and also just advertise the first two Dick Kickems being Steam Deck compatible or whatever and then I saw they don't even have store pages anymore.

        I know there's some rights frickery with Manhattan Project but what's going on with the first two?

          Anything I could bring up through research has a good chance of no longer being relevant as of today with the IP getting transferred to another company, so I'm not even gonna bother.

    If COD Gulf War goes crazy with the 90s stuff I think he could be a good fit, especially if they give him retro animations and bitcrushed sound effects like the Doom collab guns.

    If anything, they'll probably do legal actions against the Restoration Project team

    If they can tighten up the enemy's responsiveness to being fricking shot, Last Exterminator can fill in that missing late 90s/early '00s FPS that Duke Nukem should've had after Duke Nukem 3D.
    At least it seems a little more restrained and in line with the tone of 3D, compared to how fricking wacky Duke got with the N64/PS1 games and afterwards.

    People that played it at PAX last weekend also said Phantom Fury fixed a lot of the problems with the last demo, so we'll see in a month if they can deliver.

    Can't really do anything with it that wouldn't make either/both sides of the political sphere sperg so hard that they wish they'd never attempted it.

    >Tamp down on the machismo
    You're left with a middling first person shooter that pisses off too many longtime fans and attracts no new ones

    >Go all-in with it
    The amount of money you'd stand to make doesn't match the amount of bad press and damage control you'll have to run if the game came out the way it should

    The best they could hope to do is really focus on making the game/mechanic part really good and slap a ball-less Duke veneer on it, but by the time they did that they wouldn't even need Duke to be the face, they could've just stuck with something safe like a square-jawed female marine or a black Ukrainian troon in a wheelchair while the gameplay sells itself

      How does this even matter?
      People want normal games, and having journalists b***h about your game being normal is free advertisement.

        If I take your meaning of normal correctly, a "normal" game hasn't come out under a triple-a studio in a long ass time. Wouldn't you say that means it matters a lot?

          I guess it matters to them even if it shouldn't.

    It's been radio silence for years since Duke Nukem Forever, and I would expect it's going to continue to be radio silence into the foreseeable future. Duke is already such an unpalatable IP in the current year, for obvious reasons, but DNF being such a public and infamous shitshow killed whatever remaining momentum the series had. Even if Gearbox/Take Two were to want to make a new FPS game, they would almost be better off launching an entirely new IP than to resurrect Duke. It pains me to say it, but it's true.

      Duke 3D Megaton Edition was well received, and could've been a good launching point for burying DNF and moving on. Instead Randy got pissy that it was made without his involvement, revoked the license, and shat out his own remaster of Duke 3D that brought the series back to its total dormant state due to lack of interest.

    Why couldn’t Embracer keep Duke and sell gearbox? Was the stipulation that if gearbox was to be sold, duke must come with it along with the other stuff gearbox made? They could’ve sold them without the properties like they did with others.
