Legal Battle Over Locally Not-Produced Duke Nukem Forever Now Names Plano's GearBox
|The only thing that'll take longer than the development of Duke Nukem Forever is the lawsuit is created after the game never showed.|
But the latest revelation's an interesting one that also concerns a major local game creator -- Gearbox Software, so happens, straight outta Plano. ShackNews, which has been keeping tabs on the story that'll probably turn into a movie starring Jim Sturgess, reveals that in court docs filed by Take-Two, the company happened to mention that Gearbox is also working on a Duke Nukem sequel -- Duke Begins, ironic. But, see Apogee insists the game's been canceled, and that Take-Two couldn't nuke the game, the result of a deal between Take-Two and Apogee dating back to '07, without its permission. To which Take-Two replies: Unh-unh and no way, respectively.
In a related story, GearBox appears to have 13 job openings. So hop to, genius.
