Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford has announced that the company is planning a new Duke Nukem game, with more details set to be announced soon.

Pitchford made the comments during a Gearbox Community Panel at the Penny Arcade Expo, which was covered by Kotaku.

'When Gearbox acquired the franchise, we didn't do it just to make sure we could play Duke Forever, but because we wanted to make our own Duke game,' said Pitchford. 'Soon we'll talk about that, but not today.'

Publisher Take-Two has previously promised that another Duke title is in development too.

Pitchford also promised future DLC for Duke Nukem Forever, which was released earlier this year after a torturous decade in development.

'I think you're really going to like the DLC coming out that's being developed by the guys that actually made Duke Nukem Forever - the guys at Piranha, the guys at Triptych. The Triptych guys are the ex-3D Realms developers. And they're still working at our studio on the 10th floor, and they're committed. They're going to go all the way.'
