There's no way it's not going to happen. The evidence has been mounting. First there was the Gearbox rumour, to which the studio's gaffer, Randy Pitchford, said we'd find out more at PAX. Then 3D Realms' George Broussard posted a picture of some flying pigs on Twitter, one of which was wearing Duke's glasses.

Now 2K's teasing a huge announcement at PAX.

“That’s right… Something big is going to happen at the 2K Games Booth this PAX – and we want to share it with everyone – whether or not you are at the show. We’ll be streaming the first day of PAX live from our booth and giving you exclusive access to everything we’re doing – and it’s going to be AWESOME,” 2K senior manager of interactive marketing Elizabeth Tobey wrote on 2K’s official blog.

Yes. 2K are streaming the announcement.

Of course, it might not be Duke Nukem. But we'll happily put a fiver on it.
