Yesterday we reported the appearance of a countdown timer on the official Duke Nukem website, counting down to a reveal set for September 1st, the timer was also accompanied by a “Happy 20th Anniversary” banner. Today a new leak via Reddit has seemingly spoiled Gearbox Software’s big surprise.
According to Reddit User, Tezla55 Duke Nukem 3D is to receive a remaster/remix of sorts in celebration of the games 20th anniversary. Duke Nukem 3D: World Tour will be developed by Nerve Software, a studio co-founded by ex-id Software employee Brandon James. Nerve Software have assisted with past games Call of Duty: Ghosts, Advanced Warfare and Black Ops III and various DOOM titles.
“These are official. This is a Duke 3D remaster. In many ways, you can look at this game as a Duke Nukem 3D remix as there will be a lot of new/original content added in as well. From my understanding, these screens are just a handful out of a bunch of press shots that will be coming out in the following days”, said Tezla55.
With Gearbox Software yet to officially confirm the games existence, we naturally advise you to take the following images and previous information with a grain of salt.
