Duke Nukem Forever Delayed (Again)
It’s kind of funny that a game in development limbo for years would get delayed (or maybe expected?), but here it is: Duke Nukem Forever will not be released on May 3.
Gamers can rest assured however, developer Gearbox said the game will hit store shelves in America on June 14. The rest of the world can blast aliens, watch strippers and urinate (yes, urinate) with their favorite action hero stereotype character on June 10.
Watch the funny video above to see Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox, break the news in a lighthearted video. And remember, “Duke never comes early.”
[update]: Quotes from 2K and Gearbox:
“In case you haven’t heard, Duke never comes early,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “We’re committed to deliver a laugh-out-loud, politically incorrect experience that people will talk about for years to come. We thank Duke’s fans for their continued patience – I promise this won’t take another 15 years.”
“I’m very sorry for the added delay. We’ve all been working extremely hard and are very eager to deliver the game to you,” added Pitchford. “I’ve been thinking of these lyrics from the great country song, ‘He’s The Duke’ – ‘He told us if we waited we could Come Get Some, but I never knew Forever was going to be so long.’ If you’re like me, June cannot come quickly enough.”
