Okay, So What's Going To Happen To Duke Nukem Now...?
Well, here's an interesting wrinkle.
According to a Tweet from Interceptor Entertainment CEO Frederik Schreiber, his company has acquired Apogee Software, which owns 3D Realms. If you weren't aware, 3D Realms is best known for producing Duke Nukem 3D.
Last month, a teaser website for a game called Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction launched. It was supposed to be a top-down action/RPG for PC and PlayStation platforms. The site once featured a countdown timer that would've ended on February 25, but has since been replaced with a fake emergency broadcast signal. Why? Well, maybe because on February 23, Duke Nukem Forever developer Gearbox Software filed a lawsuit against Apogee and Interceptor, arguing over the rights to the iconic Duke Nukem IP.
So, how does Interceptor's acquisition of Apogee affect things? Guess we'll find out soon enough...
