Gearbox Trying to Make Good On Old Duke Nukem forever Pre-Orders

1 min read


It’s very seldom that you find a company – gaming or otherwise – that really cares for its customers. Gearbox seems to be one of those companies.

Unexpectedly, they’re trying to do something for those unfortunates who plonked down money pre-ordering the once developmentally-challenged Duke Nukem Forever. Hopefully you’ve held on to your pre-order ticket stubs…

Speaking to VG246, Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford has said the company will be working with retailers to sort out the pre-order business.

“There are a lot of people who pre-ordered the game,” said Pitchford. “We’ve been starting to talk with retailers because we didn’t take them directly, and 3D Realms didn’t take them, it was all retailers going ‘I’m going to take this guy’s money.’

“We’ve started to engage them, saying ‘Hey, you’ve got customers who you made a promise to, and any bad feeling they have will reflect on us, so can we work together to do something for those people?’

“I don’t know what we can do yet, but something should be done for the people who pre-ordered.”

Kudos, Gearbox. The game is shaping up to be a keg of gundpowder – and will explode on consoles and PC next year, showering the world with frat-boy toilet humour and digital tits. I can’t wait.
