Default Duke Nukem: Next Gen *COMING SOON*

It seems that at the moment, Gearbox Software can plain do no wrong. Not only did they revive the pronounced-dead-at-the-scene Duke Nukem Forever, and hire a host of the original dev team to continue work on the game, but now they've given the green-light to a fan-made remake of Duke Nukem 3D, codenamed Duke Nukem: Next Gen.

Frederik "Fresch" Schrieber has been working on remaking the original FPS Duke using Unreal Engine 3, and got the go-ahead in just three weeks of announcing the project. In the past, he'd worked on remakes of other infamous games, including Daikitana and SIN. It looks like this one is going to be a winner though.
We have an internal releasedate for the Multiplayer Demo, and its sooner than you think - We hope you are just as excited as we are

Now there's a company that realises that if you make a decent game with an IP (and I guess they're confident they are doing so), then any fan-made stuff is only going to help promote your product.
