The Duke Nukem lawsuit between 3D Realms and Gearbox Software has been settled, according to documents recently posted on NeoGAF. The suit was initially filed in February 2014 over Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction, a top-down action-RPG being created by 3D Realms and Interceptor Entertainment.
The game was never officially announced, but it was strongly (very strongly) hinted at on the now-disappeared website. The trouble arose from the fact that Gearbox had acquired the rights to Duke Nukem in 2010 on the way to releasing Duke Nukem Forever. “Apparently, after selling its Duke Nukem IP rights to Gearbox in 2010, 3DR sought to privately convince others that the sale never happened,” Gearbox said in its complaint. “The result is the unauthorized development effort that reportedly exists between 3DR and Interceptor.”
