Attributing the rumor to sources "claiming to have knowledge of the situation" and "sources who wished to remain anonymous," Kotaku reports that Gearbox Software has picked up development of Duke Nukem Forever, the on-hold first-person shooter that was in development at 3D Realms for so long that Wired awarded it a lifetime vaporware award in January 2004. They were unable to confirm this with publisher 2K Games, but they also report one source telling them to expect a playable demo before the end of this year, and that Gearbox president Randy Pitchford indicates he may be able to shed more light on all this next month at PAX 2010. Gearbox was previously identified as the developer on Duke Begins, the presumably cancelled game in the Duke series that was at the center of a legal tussle between Apogee/3D Realms and 2K Games.
