Even though few people still have hopes that Duke Nukem Forever will ever be released, 3D Realms CEO Scott Miller sounds quite optimistic about the future of Duke Nukem in an interview with Gamesauce. The internal Duke Nukem Forever development time was fired earlier this year, but Miller stresses that this doesn't correlate to the demise of the project.
Miller claims numerous unannounced Duke Nukem games are on the way, and added that the long-awaited Duke Nukem movie is making steady progress.
"The next few years should see a strong resurgence in Duke," Miller states in the first printed issue of Gamesauce. "There are numerous other Duke games in various stages of development, several due out this year. We are definitely looking to bring Duke into casual gaming spaces, plus there are other major Duke games in production."
"Almost all of these [projects] are unannounced," he added.
Likely among those projects are the two remaining Duke iPhone games previously promised by Miller, the handheld Duke Nukem Trilogy coming to Nintendo DS and PSP via Frontline Studios, and the rumored Xbox Live Arcade port of Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project. Furthermore, the Duke himself recently began teasing something called "D-Day" with a mysterious image, vowing that he "doesn't stay down for long."
