Gearbox wants another studio to make new Duke Nukem

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford has suggested he would be open to working with another studio on the Duke Nukem franchise.

Speaking at the Develop: Brighton conference, Pitchford was responding to a question about the future of the Duke Nukem IP, which his company acquired in 2010. He said the developer didn’t purchase the franchise "merely so we could all experience Duke Nukem Forever", which it released after some 15 years in development.

Pitchford admitted that the studio had done some concept development on a new Duke Nukem. He suggested however that a faster way to create a new entry in the franchise "would be if the correct developer would become interested and we could work with them".

Develop has more details.
