Gearbox Sues 3DRealms for Duke Nukem
Filed under: DUKE NUKEM

3D Realms recently announced a new Duke Nukem game, Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction, and Gearbox, the current owner of the IP, isn't very pleased. They have sued 3DRealms, who used to own the IP, for unauthorized use of the property and violation of Gearbox's trademarks.

"Apparently, after selling its Duke Nukem IP rights to Gearbox in 2010, 3DR sought to privately convince others that the sale never happened," Gearbox stated in their complaint. "The result is the unauthorized development effort that reportedly exists between 3DR and Interceptor."

Gearbox's complaint also includes a signed statement from 3DRealms CEO Scott Miller and George Broussard, the co-creator of Duke Nukem, who acknowledged the trademark infringement.

Last year, 3DRealms attempted to file a lawsuit against Gearbox for unpaid royalties on Duke Nukem Forever. 3DRealms later withdrew the claim and publicly apologized to Gearbox in September 2013.

This is wrong on a few different levels ... esp. the one that begs the question of who in their right mind would want to associate with the franchise after the last debacle heheheh.

3DR are now officially the biggest assclowns in gaming history. What an epic bunch of douchetards, man. Sheesh.

Whomever made the decision to try and make an entry on a trademark they don't own has just fucked over every employee in 3DR.

Foolish.

Shame... Because a well made game could actually be good! The last Duke Nukem game was a mess, but damn fun in a few places!
