Duke Nukem Forever delayed, even under Gearbox Software direction.
Expecting to get your hands on the industries fabled game this upcoming May? Gearbox and 2K Games has confirmed the title will be delayed until June 10th internationally, and on June 14th in North America. This just confirms that the title is keeping up to the accuracies of 3D Realms. How else does a game like Duke Nukem Forever confirm a delay? Through a terrific trailer, of course.
For those unfamiliar with the history of Duke Nukem Forever, we’ll explain. It all started in 1997 when the original developers at 3D Realms decided to create a sequel to their hit, Duke Nukem 3D. After running out of money and Take-Two running out of patience, Duke Nukem Forever became dubbed “Duke Nuke ForNEVER” when it was reported to be cancelled. Luckily, Gearbox Software knew a good thing when they saw it and bought up the rights in early 2009.
When the game does come out, whenever at this point, you’ll be able to purchase the standard edition and a very special “Balls of Steel” edition.
