Will Gearbox release this Duke Nukem Forever 2001 build? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6r3DWramKY

Randy asked what people want here and people all asked for Duke Nukem Forever 2001: https://forums.duke4.net/topic/9272-duke-nukem/

Can Gearbox release this like 3D Realms released LameDuke or how Devolver added Shadow Warrior betas to the Steam install or Shadow Warrior Classic?

Frederik Schreiber from Interceptor talks about the game here https://forums.duke4.net/topic/7803-status-of-the-duke-nukem-3d-betas/page__view__findpost__p__213171

Will Randy Pitchford allow it to be released? Other developers have done it.

Just have to wait and see what the youtube/chat brings tomorrow.
Between TX, Yatta, Fresch and Randy.

I’m cautiously guarded, but I’m a pessimist by nature. I hope for good things to be revealed, but… I’m ready for some neat info and nothing solid.

i watched this call and the answer seemed to be when they get the rights from 2k games and they can find a way to make money off of it by including it in some kind of collection. frederik schreiber volunteered to work on the mod tools for release for free because randy said he doesn’t know why they weren’t released with the game and he also said he would work on duke forever 2001 for free because randy said both things would cost money to do.

so the offer is there. for free frederik schreiber who announced he has access to all these things in the archives has said he will prepare both mod tools and the 2001 version of the game for release for free if that is what it will take to do but randy seemed to be more interested in waiting until some complete collection of every duke game could be done which is a shame because the way he talked about it it sounded like it would not happen anytime soon if ever. just an idea…

Asked about Jon St Jons voice performance Randy started saying there’s only only jon and frederik schreiber said they got a great voice performance from him with direction that sounded like old school duke - randy replies that it would cost money for him to be directed in a voice booth.

I think if you read the press impressions of World tour, bulletstorm and read what fans say you would know the voice is losing its touch. it is sad to find out this is because of gearbox not directing him…even george broussard said that he needed direction for duke with george directing all of his voice work before forever…
