Gearbox is Duke Begins Dev

Shacknews has word that Gearbox Software is the unnamed developer on Duke Begins, the mysterious Duke Nukem game recently revealed through legal filings. The Shack continues to risk the insanity that can be caused by too much exposure to court documents, which reveal Gearbox as the third-party working on another Duke game, which has been either shelved, cancelled, or is still under development, depending on whose story you believe. At this point the lawsuits over the Duke Nukem Forever situation seem to center on what say 3D Realms has over the release of Duke Begins, royalty arrangements, and 3D Realms' contention that DNF is still in development with no particular deadline, versus Take Two's position that the "law implies a reasonable deadline for the completion of contractual performance where no deadline is explicitly set forth in the contract."

can we just let this sad, tired, depressingly out of date macho-chest beating sexist bullshit IP die and be buried?
Its not like gaming hasn't moved on since 1923 or whenever it was duke nukem was cool.

What games have you been playing? Macho cheat-beating sells millions, except now they just spout dark reflections on the apocalyptic state of the world, instead of Bruce Campbell one-liners, and their chainsaws are attached to their guns instead of their hands.
