Mate, you can't vapourise vapour. You'd have nothing left.
Vague metaphors aside, just stop developing the franchise. After DN3, no one really expects anything from you anymore, and any money spent on it is money wasted. Sure, you have your hardcore fanbase out there, but that's a tiny portion of the fans you ha(d)ve. DN3 had expectations set too high, and we should leave it at that.
I'm sure it is over making more money otherwise if it were purely for the fans it would be finished and posted all over the internet. It seems like the concern is coming from selling through downloads or disks.....I'm not following the remake but would like to play it if it were to become available. This article makes it sound like it is over money.

that's my thoughts , or perhaps gearbox is deciding on doing a total series reboot soon now that they ahve the ip , and who knows maybe this free game will conflict with thier ideas (ie pockets)
oh so f---ing meh now , i want to kick some one's teeth in ..bade week for me , 1. find out they compeltely redid my online schools classes scheduling, so now i dotn get teh week off i thought i was gonna get this week , and to boot no 3 week holiday breaks now , jsut 8 days off in x-mas season now
2. my copy of Dead island is late getting here in the mail from amazon.
3. my crappy MS HDMI cable for my Xbox broke last night so i got to use the crappy RCA cable for the time cos i'm broke
and now i here this bit of BS news .... was really looking forward to the D3D remake
What is sad is I bet this remake of the original was much higher quality than DNF. I must say my respect for Gearbox was still pristine even after DNF but seeing how they stepped on the little guy who they even green-lighted for the project in the first place this is not something that sits easy for me.
I am not at all surprised. There was entirely too much foreign influence going on. The game, it's sense of humor and it's character were being misinterpreted and misrepresented due to a culture gap. Duke Nukem is an American, as such it is very difficult for foreign developers to produce a game that would correctly represent the Duke IP.

theyre not really making a game, they are remastering a game. Most likely if gearbox allowed they wouldve used original Dukes voice and lines from the original game or rerecorded the same lines with the same duke. Not much influence from cultures there.
Zero Duke is better than Euro-Duke IMO. Get your own action hero! Isn't it bad enough all of our other crap is manufactured in China?! It is time for ze ass to getting kicked undt za chewing of za gum no? NO!!! NO!!! NO!!!
