Apparently unconcerned by Duke Nukem Forever's poor performance, Gearbox is reportedly planning on rebooting the Duke.
According to the same Official Xbox Magazine
rumour round-up that brought word of Fable IV in 2013
, the reboot will be done "with the long-discussed Duke Begins
, but not until Aliens: Colonial Marines
Gearbox took over ownership of the Duke Nukem
IP from 3D Realms last year, so it's not much of a stretch to assume that the company would want to eke some more life out of the property. Gearbox was also attached to the mysterious Duke Begins
project prior to the developer taking ownership of the Duke IP.
