Take-Two considering Wii U development; more Duke incoming

Despite negative reviews for Duke Nukem Forever, Take-Two’s first-person shooter thirteen years in the making, more Duke is on the horizon. Asked by Forbes during a recent interview if we’ll see more out of the Duke Nukem IP, including movies and TV, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick teased more to come.

“We don’t really talk about it in detail but you will see future Duke IP coming from this company,” responded Zelnick.

Take-Two hasn’t been very active on Wii, publishing only two games for the Nintendo platform. That may change with Wii U. Asked if Take-Two was on board to develop for the console, and more specifically if Rockstar would appear on the platform, Zelnick had the following to say:

“We’ll see. We are looking at it seriously and at the relationship with Nintendo. We have supported the Wii and it has worked for us. We have done Carnival Games for the Wii. They support the platform and they were pretty excited about what they have seen. It will not be driven by me pounding the table saying do it, it will be driven by economic opportunity and creative opportunity.”

Wii U launches in 2012.
