Duke Nukem Forever hasn’t exactly done well in reviews but that’s not deterring Take-Two, the publisher that purchased the IP and finally brought the game to market – something many other companies failed to do in the fourteen year development cycle.
Head of Take-Two, Strauss Zelnick, told Forbes that “you will see future Duke IP coming from this company” but he did not go into details as to what that would entail.
It sounds like Duke will be hitting other entertainment mediums in the future; he’s already made the jump to comic books in Duke Nukem: Glorious Bastard, which launches in July 2011. Exactly what that Duke IP might be is up for debate.
Zelnick elaborated, saying: “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. We have certainly considered doing that with BioShock and with other titles. So far we haven’t brought anything to market, but stay tuned.”
A Duke film? A new Duke Nukem game designed from the ground up? Would you bet on Duke for a second time? With a new Duke project started from scratch, the odds might be a little more appealing.
