As we approach the 20th anniversary celebration of the beloved king Duke Nukem. A rumor has sparked hope of a comeback for all fans of the franchise. The rumor speaks of a possible remake of one of the best outings this franchise has to offer, Duke Nukem 3D. The Duke Nukem 3D remake is being dubbed Duke Nukem 3D: World Tour. The remake will keep all of the original content, plus new additions to the game that are totally brand new and original.
After several legal battles, Gearbox is now the official owner to the rights of Duke Nukem. However, no official confirmation has been made from Gearbox about this game. All the leaks for the Duke Nukem 3D remake have come from a Reddit user called Texla55. The credibility of this leak has been made stronger by the appearance of a countdown clock on the official Duke Nukem website. This countdown will end on the day of the 20th anniversary celebration of the franchise. Many fans speculate that this is when Gearbox will confirm the announcement of Duke Nukem 3D: World Tour.
After the terrible reviews that Duke Nukem Forever received back when it was released to much anticipation in 2011. Fans were left with a sour taste in their mouths. Now this rumor brings hope to the fans. As it would be a perfect time for Gearbox to make a move and revitalize this franchise. Having gone through all those legal battles to procure the rights to the Duke franchise. Many believe that Gearbox is getting ready to announce the new phase of Duke Nukem.
Perhaps the Duke Nukem 3D remake is just the beginning. Especially relevant was that recently an Android port called Duke Nukem 3D: Hail to the King collection was canceled due to licensing issues. This was during the process when Gearbox acquired the rights. In conclusion this could mean that Gearbox is planning something big for the king. Furthermore, they want to do it right in re-introducing the king to the gaming world.
