Great, now we'll never see that Duke Nukem HD Reloaded remake from Interceptor. And now Gearbox and Randy can sit on more IP's that they have done little service too. What a soddin' wanker.
Was that Bombshell, or was Bombshell something else? They say they're "eager to complete development of the ‘Bombshell’ game and get it in the hands of our fans."
Oh, and they're not going to sit on that IP, they're going to exploit the fuck out of it.
It was going to be "Duke Nukem 3D Reloaded" a remake of the original Duke Nukem. Same levels with stuff added to 'em on Unreal 3 engine. Interceptor said it was shaping up. Gearbox shut em down. There are very little screens of it: Screenshot 1
, Screenshot 2
. When it was shut down, Schreiber stated:
"The problem was that Reloaded, in its then present state, was both a prettier and better game than Forever was. So they [Gearbox] could under no circumstances allow us [Interceptor] to publish it, show it, or do anything at all with it, because it would destroy the sales-opportunities they had left in Forever."
Basically Gearbox/Randy being pikers to make a buck off Forever.
