Could we see the Duke himself alongside Marcus Fenix in the next Gears of War?
This week in “interesting cryptic Twitter hints,” Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford has dropped something suggesting a crossover game between Gearbox’s own Duke Nukem and Microsoft’s Gears of War.
“A Duke Nukem/Gears of War crossover would be pretty badass…” a fan Tweeted to Pitchford. “On December 1st, we are announcing something you might really enjoy :)”
Now, while Gearbox Software bought the licence to Duke Nukem back when it “saved” Duke Nukem Forever in 2011, it has nothing to do with Gears of War, which is owned by Microsoft and currently developed by The Coalition. So while Pitchford’s Tweet does hint at a Gears/Duke crossover… it’s probably not super likely.
That means that his Tweet is probably referring to another Duke Nukem announcement. Leading theories suggest Duke will be added as a playable character in Gearbox’s struggling Battleborn, or that we are just straight up getting a new Duke Nukem game.
Either way, we won’t have to wait too long until the December 1st announcement.
