Duke Nukem Forever will be released under Gearbox's name, the sources claimed. One indicated that a playable demo might be released later this year. Unsurprisingly, DNF publisher 2K Games, creator 3D Realms and Gearbox have not confirmed this.
While Gearbox involvement in DNF has been rumoured before, this time Gearbox president Randy Pitchford hinted that--in Kotaku's words--"he may be able to better clarify the situation further at this year's Penny Arcade Expo,"which runs September 3-5.
However, Pitchford might be teasing news of the unannounced
Duke Nukem Forever as it was under 3D Realms in 2008.
