Rumor: Gearbox taking over Duke Nukem Forever

With 3D Realms taking ten billion years to make a game, there are rumors that Gearbox Software has taken over development of the Duke Nukem franchise, and will have something to announce at PAX Prime. 

According to what Kotaku has heard, Gearbox has picked up the Duke Nukem Forever project, a game started in 1997. Take-Two maintains that it still has the rights to the game, and Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford says that he will be able to say something at the next PAX event in September. 

This is nothing but speculation until Gearbox deigns to confirm it, but this is still a glimmer of light for those who still hoped to play Duke Nukem Forever before they died. Maybe we will indeed see this game within our lifetime!
