It seems that at the moment, Gearbox Software can plain do no wrong. Not only did they revive the pronounced-dead-at-the-scene Duke Nukem Forever, and hire a host of the original dev team to continue work on the game, but now they've given the green-light to a fan-made remake of Duke Nukem 3D, codenamed Duke Nukem: Next Gen.
Frederik "Fresch" Schrieber has been working on remaking the original FPS Duke using Unreal Engine 3, and got the go-ahead in just three weeks of announcing the project. In the past, he'd worked on remakes of other infamous games, including Daikitana and SIN. It looks like this one is going to be a winner though.
We have a brief YouTube video of his game in action (though early in development) below.
