Last month, Kotaku was told that 3D Realms' ridiculously long-in-the-making shooter Duke Nukem Forever would finally see the light of day, thanks to a saving throw from Borderlands studio Gearbox Software. Duke's reveal was rumoured to happen at this weekend's PAX convention.
At the time, Gearbox president Randy Pitchford would neither confirm nor deny that his studio was giving Duke Nukem Forever one more shot at eventual completion, saying that he may have more to offer at the aforementioned show. Recent chatter from those close to the Duke Nukem Forever saga might indicate that PAX is the place for a reveal.
Duke Nukem voice actor Jon St John recently tweeted that he "is headed for PAX Seattle tomorrow".
"See you at Q&A#1 in the main theatre 11:30AM Friday...ask, I'll tell almost all!" St John said. Kotaku has been told from sources claiming to have knowledge of the situation that Duke Nukem Forever's next appearance will happen at the kick-off of PAX 2010, possibly at the "Penny Arcade Q&A #1" session.
For what it's worth, 3D Realms head George Broussard more recently (and more cryptically) tweeted an image of pigs flying, perhaps an indicator that the long in development Duke game is actually happening this time.
Take-Two Interactive has an investor call happening later today, where it may or may not shed a little more light on the situation. We'll know on Friday if rumours of Duke's revival are fact or fiction.
