Rumor: Duke Nukem 3D for Xbox Live
Sources say 3D Realms is prepping DN3D for Live complete with a four-player cooperative mode.

January 14, 2008 - Last August, 3D Realms head George Broussard suggested that the studio would like to develop a version of its classic PC first-person shooter, Duke Nukem 3D, for Xbox Live, all but saying that the ball was in Microsoft's court, but unwilling to elaborate with details. On Monday, sources close to 3D Realms, which is separately working on the long-in-development next installment in the beloved franchise, Duke Nukem Forever, confirmed to IGN that Duke Nukem 3D is, in fact, scheduled to debut on Xbox Live within the next several months. And best of all, it'll feature a four-player online cooperative mode over Live. Insiders also allege that it will boast an eight-player online deathmatch mode.

Duke Nukem 3D released for PC in early 1996 and soon became a runaway hit. The title helped define the iconic videogame hero, who spit out one-liners nearly as often as he gunned down alien scum. Duke Nukem 3D also raised the bar over then-benchmark shooters like Doom, featuring the ability to look up and down, as well as offering inventive new gadgets and weapons like the jet pack and laser trip wires.
Look out for more information on the project in the not-too-distant future.


Looks like the rumors may be true. Maybe we'll here something at GDC next month. I for one would love this. To be able to play classic duke nukem, with achievements and xbox live MP. Crossing my fingers for this one.

And the point of posting that was??? This isn't about Duke Nukem Forever, this is about a possible Duke Nukem arcade game, which I would love to see! Duke Nukem was like my favorite game on the 64 other than Goldeneye and Mario 64. So, read the thread before you post in it.

The ne Duke Nukem has been "in the works" for about two years or more. I wouldn't plan on it coming anytime soon. I would love to play it though. I've missed the Duke games.

I would love to see this come back. It might be *almost* as good as if GoldenEye comes back.
