I believe the HRP does not involve Gearbox, but 3D Realms.

Once again, this was not a decision made by Gearbox:

Not the decision of Gearbox Software.

The non-commercial license agreement that we happily provided to the team is still valid.

It's not about whether the game can or cannot be released by the team. Rather, Gearbox controls the release. They decide when a launch can happen (or whether it happens at all), which is expected for an officially sanctioned license. For instance, the teams developing those Sierra adventure remakes and sequels made similar agreements with Vivendi/Activision. By signing a contract, you avoid the risk of litigation, but at the same time, you hand over control to the rights holder.

The problem is that Duke Nukem development is ongoing, which leaves no guarantee that Reloaded can be released soon (DNF DLC). There's also the worry that Duke Begins and other developments might get in the way......

At the end of the day, it's up to Gearbox, which might be unsettling to the developers (would be better if they came to some consensus on a general timeframe, but I'm guessing that Gearbox isn't willing to commit yet).

I hope this game will be like the 2001 version of DNF but with modern graphics.

Always has.
The decision to put the project on hold came from Interceptor themselves. There could be unknown circumstances that we don't know about, and we don't need to know about.

Remember, these guys don't get paid to make this. They are doing this on top of a regular job/life. So, who knows what could/has come up.

I smell Black mesa: source all over again. Put on hold and by the times it's released only a small handful of people will take the time to notice.

As what 3DR and others learned from DNF, timing is very important. You take too long you run the risk of people not caring anymore but if you make it too quick it looks and plays shoddy.

It's a shame to hear about this Keep your chin up though fresch! It's a tough decision to make but you'll pull through. You've all worked very hard on this game and got really far so that's something to be proud of. Keep looking out for that window of opportunity though! It'll come, I'm sure. I can assure you that even though it's been pushed back, I'm still looking forward to this game
