Developer Interceptor Entertainment, which released the Rise of the Triad remake last year, has announced a new game, simply called Bombshell. It’s headed to PC and Playstation 4 somewhere in early 2015.
Bombshell is the game the developer has been teasing for a while on a “no gum needed” site, which nods towards Duke Nukem. They recently also bought Duke Nukem studio 3D Realms.
In fact, the company is currently in hot water with Gearbox Software, who is suing them over issues with the intellectual property. It addresses this issue on the Bombshell site, stating:
Lawsuits take time, and are often a long, drawn-out process. Meanwhile, we wanted to be productive. Ultimately, we saw it as the opportunity to create our own intellectual property, and Bombshell was born.
Further on, Interceptor also briefly goes over whether or not they’ll be able to work with a Duke Nukem title again. They continued with the following:
It’s impossible to say what will happen in regards to our previous project. It might return, it might not. We want to make great games without sacrificing our integrity, and Bombshell allows us to do that beautifully.
