Duke Nukem Remake Receives Official Blessing From Duke's Developers

Duke Nukem: Next-Gen, that ambitious attempt to remake the original Duke Nukem 3D using the Unreal Engine, has been granted a "personal non-commercial license" by Gearbox Studios. Meaning it may actually be released.

The license means it's completely cool for the project to not only remake the original game, but to use the Duke Nukem name and branding all over it as well. The game's project lead Frederik "Fresch" Schreiber even tells us the remake will be receiving official support from Gearbox, the developers currently finishing off the long-in-development Duke Nukem Forever.

Now we know the project won't be shut down, all that's left to wonder is whether Duke Nukem: Next-Gen, unlike so many other promising mods and remakes, can actually ever be completed.
