At this point, it’s no secret that a lot of sites aren’t taking well to the latest release in Duke Nukem. And while we think the game is alright, many think the game is just downright ugly, mean, and dated. Despite the bad reception, Take-Two still has faith in their over the top 90’s action hero.
“We don’t really talk about it in detail but you will see future Duke IP coming from this company,” said Strauss Zelnik president of Take-Two Interactive. “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.”

Duke Nukem Forever refuses to die, but at the very least we get a little bit of new media for the game. The footage, which was apparently leaked, looks pretty much inline with the other leaked footage and screen shots which appeared last year. Although the footage is a little dark, but the later half of the video brightens up a bit.
Who ever leaked the footage got a little creative and added music that isn’t the standard Duke Nukem theme that we see with all the other footage. It is a very interesting and odd combination.
You can check out the footage after the jump.

While the Duke Nukem franchise has been rather quiet since Duke Nukem Forever was announced, gamers are about to have a explosion of Duke Nukem titles to help make up for the years Duke has been laying low.
In an interview with Gamesauce 3D realms CEO Scott Miller said that the company has big plans for Duke. “The next few years should see a strong resurgence in Duke. There are numerous other Duke games in various stages of development, several due out this year. We are definitely looking to bring Duke into casual gaming spaces, plus there are other major Duke games in production.” Miller said that almost all of these products are currently unannounced. These unannounced titles may include the possible D-Day Duke Nukem teaser that appeared late last year (horrah 2010) or possibly the rumored port of Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project to X-box Live Arcade.
Miller also confirm that the development on Duke Begins, that was being handled by Gear Box thedeveloper Border Lands and Brothers in Arms series, has been haulted as of July 2009.
While many believed Duke Nukem Forever would be forever buried, Millar reassures us that the Duke Nukem Forever may never die. Miller said “We’ve never said that Duke Nukem Forever has ceased development. Yes, we released the internal team, but that doesn’t correlate to the demise of the project.” Clearly you should always bet on Duke, because he never dies.
