3D Realms & Gearbox End Duke Nukem Legal Battle

A lot has changed in video games across my six years as a professional words person, but Duke Nukem has always been a shambles. In uncertain times, I knew I could always glance his way and groan "Oh no what's happened now?" I feel a little lost now the legal troubles between old owner 3D Realms and the new Dukelords at Gearbox Software have wrapped…

Lawsuit Takes Toll, Duke Nukem On Hold For Bombshell

Remember that legal battle between Rise of the Triad developer Interceptor (who recently ate 3D Realms) and Borderlands border/game license patrol Gearbox over who's allowed to make Duke Nukem games? Yeah, well it's still happening, and apparently it's not going as smoothly as Interceptor anticipated when I interviewed them. From Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction's maybe-ashes has arisen Bombshell, Interceptor's own top-down blast-'em-up starring a hard-fighting,…

3D Realms Puts Up Dukes In Legal Battle With Gearbox

The plot thickens. Actually, come to think of it, the plot was already quite thick - perhaps even viscous - given that 3D Realms sold the rights to Duke Nukem years ago only to resurface out-of-the-blue with a new Duke Nukem game being developed by Rise of the Triad developer Interceptor, get sued by Gearbox for it, sell its entire business to Interceptor, and allege…

Interceptor On 3D Realms, Gearbox, Blood, The Future

It hasn't exactly been "business as usual" for Interceptor lately. First the Rise of the Triad necromancer stealthily didn't quite reveal a new Duke Nukem game, and then Gearbox *did* entirely sue them for it. But while the Borderlands creator is flinging around 87 bazillion pieces of supposed evidence to the contrary, Interceptor believes it's in the clear - especially in light of the fact…

Interceptor ‘Not Too Worried’ About Gearbox/Duke Lawsuit

Oh gaming industry, even during the early year release doldrums, you never pull punches on good old fashioned drama. In the red corner, we have Rise of the Triad developer Interceptor, whose burgeoning brand roster now includes the smoldering remains of original Duke Nukem creator 3D Realms, and in the blue corner we have Borderlands developer and current Duke owner Gearbox. Gearbox, of course, is…

A Keen Deal: Interceptor Purchases 3D Realms/Apogee

I didn't see this coming. Interceptor, the Danish company that recently announced a Duke Nukem ARPG and released the Rise of the Triad remake last year, have bought Apogee Software Ltd (aka the legal name of 3D Realms). This surprises me because I didn't think I'd be writing any stories about 3D Realms in 2014, except perhaps when they licensed Shadow Warrior out for a…

Maybe Stop Betting On Duke: Gearbox Suing 3D Realms

Hail to the legal filing, baby. Gearbox, owners of the Duke Nukem IP, have filed a complaint against 3D Realms, creators of the Duke Nukem IP. That's because, as Adam spotted earlier this month, 3D Realms have teamed up with developers Interceptor to make Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction, apparently without owning any of the rights that would allow them to do that legally.

Top-Down Trash Talk: Duke Nukem – Mass Destruction

If the NeoGAF community's swift data extraction is to be believed, Interceptor, the team that rebooted Rise of the Triad, are due to announce a new Duke Nukem game. They have history with the man who stole a thousand catchphrases, having initially attracted Apogee's attention while working on a remake of Duke Nukem 3D. Mass Destruction does not sound a continuation of that remake. Instead,…
