Somebody get a thermometer down to hell, because the elusive Duke Nukem Forever has been revealed to be back in development.
Speaking ahead of PAX today, 2K Games confirmed that the title, which has been in development for over a decade, is now in the safe hands of Gearbox, creators of Borderlands and Brothers In Arms. They’ll be taking over from 3D Realms who were previously building the successor to 1996′s Duke Nukem 3D.
We’ll get a better look at the title soon, as it will be on show at PAX for the weekend. If you’re heading over there, check out 2K’s booth. It seems a release might not be so far away, too – with Gearbox having been shaping the title since late 2009 – as it is now in its ‘polishing’ stage.
