On Duke Nukem's Future

3D Realms has "numerous" Duke Nukem games in the works, says Shacknews based on quotes from Gamesauce Magazine (presumably a print version, as there's not much online). "There are numerous other Duke games in various stages of development, several due out this year. We are definitely looking to bring Duke into casual gaming spaces, plus there are other major Duke games in production," says Scott Miller. "Almost all of these are unannounced." Miller also says that Duke Nukem Forever is still alive: "yes, we released the internal team, but that doesn't correlate to the demise of the project." They also pull a segment that explains how development of DNF was able to continue so long on the profits from other developers' games:

Duke Nukem 3D was made for $300,000, and we made back 25 times our investment--not to mention all of the third-party Duke console games that sold well. Plus, we made a killing with Wolfenstein 3D. And we made the biggest killing on Max Payne! We made $30 million in royalties on that game (off of a $2.5 million investment), plus another $48 million selling the IP to our publisher. Oh, and we were also part owners of Gathering of Developers when that was sold to Take2. And finally, we have been pretty lucky with other investments, both in the stock market and in other studios.

Jesus. Will 3dr just die already? God damn. I'm tired of this bullshit cluttering up my gaming news pages, and I can't fucking adblock it. >:\

Nobody who still cares about Duke Nukem ever even played the first game, so fuck this shit.
