Judging from the comments on our review, Duke Nukem Forever is one of those incredibly divisive games -- you either love it or you hate it. In spite of the negative reviews, publisher Take Two Interactive's CEO Strauss Zelnick says there's more Duke on the way. In an interview with Forbes, Zelnick was asked whether we might see Duke in new games, TV shows or movies. He replied:
"We don’t really talk about it in detail but you will see future Duke IP coming from this company.
Part of it is the economic opportunities that interact with entertainment are so huge. Part of it is that we are very creative folks in control. Part of it is we don’t want to ever be in the position of dumping something down just to make another buck. If we can take some of our intellectual property and bring it to another medium in an extraordinary high quality way, that delights consumers and represents an interesting commercial opportunity for us, we will. We have certainly considered doing that with BioShock and with other titles. So far we haven’t brought anything to market, but stay tuned.
We don't have sales number yet on how well Duke is selling, but I gotta figure that future appearances of Duke in movies or TV shows depend on the popularity of the game. Creatively, though, I'm not seeing it. Duke Nukem, as a character, is so derivative of 80s movie action stars, that it's hard to see what, exactly, he would do in a TV or movie... but again, if there's fan-demand (and money to be made) someone will think of something.
You should read the rest of the Zelnick interview. Among other thing, Zelnick mentions the possibility of iPad games that are worth $40, whether Take Two plans on developing for the Wii U, and what game the head of Take Two is most excited about.
