How Gearbox canceled Duke 3D: Reloaded

Recommended Posts

Those screenshots look amazing! Not due to the content per se, but how modern it looks and still manages to really captivate the original.

No surprise the Gearbox execs wouldn't let this out anywhere as it'd shit all over DNF. Very frustrating as I was really interested in playing this. And now that Gearbox have the Homeworld license I sure hope they don't drop the ball again with that. Borderlands 1 and 2 are good games but you can't ride on those forever.

When looking on Borderlands 2 sales the studio will survive for a moment but maybe not in that squad.

Still there are some nice memories from the past from Gearbox:

- Blueshift

- Opposing Force

- THIS

Don't forget Brothers In Arms was really well put together, then they sacrificed it on the altar of casualness.

I'm curious to see what they are doing with the BiA+Inglorious Basterds game.

Weird twist, Gearbox have turned round and said that actually they can continue making it and release it non-commercially if they want:

Ball's back in your court Sentura! I mean, Interceptor.

Kind of sucks to potentially put so much work in and not be able to get any money from it, though. Even if it is a passion project, that's a tall order for a small studio...

It should be noted that there might be other versions of this story. The Danish games industry is a tight community but nobody seem to know this Frederick guy and his team also seems to be entirely composed of inexperienced developers. While there is nothing wrong with that, it does raise a flag in terms of credibility when he comes out with very big words.

So basically this guy is taking other peoples licences and attempting to make money off them? 

 

 

 

Schreiber is now working on an updated version of Rise of the Triad

This has literally just been done and what right does he think he has to take that IP and do that anyway?

If you read the article, it says non-commercial license. As in, it was to be a full conversion type mod released for free (also explicitly stated in the article). As for Rise of the Triad, Apogee has had the license for a number of years, which is why they decided to market it in the first place. Neither of these licenses have been infringed upon or otherwise treated unlawfully, regardless of what people think/assume/hear rumors about.
