Gearbox is reportedly set to reboot Duke Nukem after development on Aliens: Colonial Marines ends, according to the same OXM rumour wrap that cited Fable IV for a 2013 release this morning. The reboot will come with Duke Begins, the project that Gearbox was working on before taking over development on Forever after being in dev hell for 15 years. After announcing it took over development on DNF, the Texan developer said it had became the rights holders of the IP. Via CVG.

Take-Two Interactive has revealed via new court records that Gearbox Software was the developer for Duke Begins.
The game was originally revealed via a court filing by 3D Realms.
Duke Begins was apparently part of an agreement between Take-Two and 3D Realms in 2007 with Gearbox handling development.
Since all the court hoopla, the title has been sidelined “for the time being” but has not been canceled entirely, according to the new court documents.
Loads more regarding this over on Shack.

Development began within two months of an October 2007 funding agreement between 3DRealms and Take-Two, with the developer retaining rights to to approve “any changes to that [development] schedule.”
There’s plenty more on Shacknews. Poor old Duke. All he wants to do is spend his golden years sitting on the porch.
