3D Realms Responds to Duke Nukem Lawsuit

There's a follow up to news that Gearbox is suing 3D Realms over Duke Nukem rights on Polygon, where they have a response from 3D Realms to the assertion that they and Interceptor Entertainment are infringing on the Duke IP with plans for Duke Nukem Survivor, the new working title for the project formerly known as Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction. Here's 3D Realms' statement:

"On March 17, 2014, 3D Realms filed its answer to the complaint by Gearbox Software in Dallas, Texas. 3DR denies all allegations set forth in the complaint. In its answer, 3DR has submitted evidence showing that Gearbox at no point intended to enter into good faith negotiations but instead sought to force former owners, Scott Miller and George Broussard, to improperly surrender what rightfully belonged to 3DR.

"It is our position that 3DR retains the right to develop the tentatively titled "Duke Nukem Survivor" game for specific platforms. This game was previously licensed for development to Interceptor Entertainment. Furthermore, it is our position that the Trademark for "Duke Nukem" was never assigned to Gearbox, but remains the sole property of 3DR."
