Duke Nukem Lawsuits Settled

A statement on the Gearbox Software website shows that the lawsuits over the rights to the Duke Nukem IP have been settled, and the lawyers for Gearbox, Interceptor Entertainment, and 3D Realms are all now in the hot tub toasting their success. There are statements from all the involved parties, with 3D Realms saying they didn't realize they weren't entitled to license an IP after selling it off, that Interceptor is still developing Bombshell, and that Gearbox has voluntarily ended the litigation, satisfied that they've proven ownership of the Duke IP. There are hugs all around, and the goodwill everyone expresses makes a mystery of how this ended up in court. Here's some of the love:
Gearbox Software appreciates the sentiments from Interceptor and 3D Realms' representatives. Gearbox Software President Randy Pitchford said, ďI genuinely appreciate Mr. Nielsenís and Mr. Schreiberís statement and sincerely offer my best wishes to Interceptor Entertainment and 3D Realms towards their future success and, as someone who was part of the 3D Realms team when Bombshell was first imagined, I am excited to see what they have in store for us with their game.
