Duke Nukem to join the 'casual' game market?

3D Realms -- the studio I'm convinced is nothing but an extravagant practical joke -- has teased "numerous" upcoming Duke Nukem projects over the coming years, with a "resurgence" planned for the notorious FPS hero. Apparently, the man with balls of steel could be going the way of the "casual" game as well. 

"There are numerous other Duke games in various stages of development, several due out this year," says 3D Realms CEO Scott Miller. "We are definitely looking to bring Duke into casual gaming spaces, plus there are other major Duke games in production. Almost all of these are unannounced."

Miller has also denied that the notorious Duke Nukem Forever is dead, and also claims that the Duke movie is "making steady progress." Furthermore, the CEO adds that 3D Realms will "continue to license and co-create games based upon the Duke Nukem franchise," and that the new focus on external development is something he should have made years ago. 

In any case, 3D Realms is hopeful that Duke is making his big comeback. I guess we'll have to believe it when we see it.
