Duke Nukem Forever may have been panned by critics, but that doesn’t mean The King is dead; far from it, in fact, as publisher Take-Two has said that we’ll be seeing more from the alien arse-kicker later down the line.
Speaking with Forbes, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick commented, "We don't really talk about it in detail but you will see future Duke IP coming from this company.”
"Part of it is the economic opportunities that interact with entertainment are so huge. Part of it is that we are very creative folks in control. Part of it is we don't want to ever be in the position of dumping something down just to make another buck.”
"If we can take some of our intellectual property and bring it to another medium in an extraordinary high quality way, that delights consumers and represents an interesting commercial opportunity for us, we will,” he continued.
"We have certainly considered doing that with BioShock and with other titles," he added. "So far we haven't brought anything to market, but stay tuned."
Duke Nukem Forever finally arrived on stores a few weeks ago after an arduous, 14-year development cycle. Sadly, The King's comeback wasn’t quite what we were hoping for, as you can see for yourself in our review here.
