Here's the announcement:

What Hack’n’Slash MMORPG would be complete without a strong cast? That’s why we are thrilled to announce the addition of the legendary Duke Nukem to Wild Buster: Heroes of Titan’s already deadly dozen!

We have been working in collaboration with Gearbox Publishing to bring our favourite videogame tough-guy to the planet Titan. The Broken had better be worried, the Duke is coming to scrap them and chew bubblegum, and guess what? He’s all outta’ gum.

Pre-order the SciFi Action MMORPG now to get access to the Alpha Test! https://igg.me/at/WildBuster

Interesting. I can't say ill be preordering this but upon release I will definitely give it a look. I appreciate, if nothing else, that Randy was sincere in his intention to get Duke into other projects.

Tbh I am only pissed by now about what Gearbox is doing with the Duke Nukem brand. Just putting the character in all kinds of games randomly doesn't turn them into games I would like to play as a Duke fan. It is uninspired, shameful and embarrassing.

I really wished a company with solid funding would buy the DN rights. It shouldn't stay in the hands of Gearbox which is obviously struggling for survival by now, with its last hope being Borderlands 3. Rereleasing older titles with ridicilous pricetags or putting Duke in other games shows how desperate they have become and how clueless they are regarding what to do with the rights.

While having spent some time on the Gearbox forums, it has become apparent to me that Gearbox's lineup seems to appeal to a much younger, and quite honestly from my experience there, a much more cynical demographic. I don't believe many of them are even familiar with DN. At least not to the extent of peoples level of familiarity around here anyway. A decision truly needs to be made as to what direction DN will go. Any future DN games or games with DN in them, should embody this new direction.
If anything at all, implementing Duke in not only Heroes of Titan but also in the upcoming movie Ready Player One, will only help to keep DN relevant with the younger generation of today, who's awareness of DN is indeed limited, compared to our own of course.

Well, keeping the character alive and "present" is one thing. But just using it as a sideshow character or as a substitute to play with instead of the real protagonist doesn't do justice to Duke. Maybe Gearbox doesn't realize this or simply doesn't care for the sake of quick profit, but what we need quite badly is a new full-scale Duke game that doesn't suck.
