Zelnick: `You will see future Duke IP` at Take Two

Category: Duke Nukem

Take Two president Strauss Zelnick has said in a Forbes interview that more Duke Nukem will be coming from the publisher in the future.

“We don’t really talk about it in detail but you will see future Duke IP coming from this company,” he said in the chat.

Zelnick got a little more vague after that, though.

“Part of it is the economic opportunities that interact with entertainment are so huge. Part of it is that we are very creative folks in control. Part of it is we don’t want to ever be in the position of dumping something down just to make another buck,” he added.

“If we can take some of our intellectual property and bring it to another medium in an extraordinary high quality way, that delights consumers and represents an interesting commercial opportunity for us, we will. We have certainly considered doing that with BioShock and with other titles. So far we haven’t brought anything to market, but stay tuned.”

Take Two had the publishing rights for Duke Nukem Forever, released nearly two weeks ago after 14 years in development, through 2K Games.

However, it does not own the IP. That honor belongs to Gearbox, who announced at PAX last year it had bought the rights to Duke from 3D Realms.

Thanks VG247.
