Will he or won’t he? Only his voice actor knows for sure. That’s the hope, anyway, of those still hanging on a thread for the return of gaming icon Duke Nukem. Jon St. John, Duke’s real-world voice counterpart, dropped a tantalizing clue on what might be the Dukester’s future.
St. John made an appearance at the Music and Games Festival (MAGFest) in Alexandria, Virginia earliler this month. When asked about Duke’s future, St. John told his audience he was not allowed to speak on the subject. The crowd, apparently a bit slow on the uptake, groaned its displeasure, prompting St. John to tell them “read between the lines: why am I not allowed to talk about it?”
With a continuing history of false starts and misleading clues on Duke’s return, there’s no reason to think this isn’t one. But, if you are a member of the faithful, perhaps this will buoy your hope for another few months.
