Gearbox Software: Duke Hasn't Nuked Our Other Projects
Yeah, Gearbox now has the exclusive rights to Duke Nukem but that doesn't mean everything else at the studio has come to a screeching halt.
Studio boss Randy Pitchford told VG247 that the announcement of Duke Nukem Forever hasn't caused the team to forget about Aliens: Colonial Marines or more DLC for Borderlands. Pitchford said the new Aliens title "has always been very important" to them, and they remain "fully committed to the project." They admit that Duke stole the show this past weekend but he clarifies that nobody should worry about Borderlands or their Brothers in Arms games, either. For the former, Gearbox announced a release date for the latest batch of DLC, Claptrap's New Robot Revolution: September 28. They also talked about a level-cap increase (up to 69, we believe) and "re-balancing for the game." The designers say they're "still playing it today" and in fact, there will be even more Borderlands news in the near future...possibly the announcement of a sequel?
We'll have to see more of Aliens: Colonial Marines before we allow ourselves to get excited. For now, it really is all about Duke's new digs. Sorry, Gearbox...the Internet says so.
