Say what you will about the quality and fun factor of Duke Nukem Forever, the title seems to be doing the business for publisher 2K Games. And there will be more additions to the franchise.
Says parent Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick: “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.”
With the relic from a forgotten era out of the way, chances are new entries to the franchise will be taking a far more up-to-date approach both visually and gameplay wise. Or so we hope.
