Duke Nukem Forever Delayed

March 24, 2011, By Christian Davis

If you’ve been waiting forever for Duke Nukem Forever, then continue to wait. The original release date for May has now been set back to June 14th. Fantastic!

At least Gearbox Software made a joke about it. We all know this game has been delayed a couple times already, and they’re really sorry about it. This “very special message” video really shows the humorous side of the company and hopefully it’s portrayed the same way in the game.

Here’s the video and Press Release below.

 

2K Games and Gearbox Software announced today that Duke Nukem’s glorious comeback in Duke Nukem Forever® will now explode at retail on June 10, 2011 internationally and June 14, 2011 in North America on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC. With gamers jumping out of their seats and waiting in line for hours to play the game at PAX East, it appears that the fans have spoken – Duke Nukem Forever is worth the wait.

 

“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.”

 

The incredibly unapologetic Duke Nukem Forever is the video game realization of the ultimate Hollywood summer blockbuster on steroids. Starring the iconic and legendary titular character, Duke Nukem Foreverpromises to reinvent the key ingredients necessary to create a summer smash hit that’s boiling over-the-top with irreverent humor, catchy one-liners that will make your mama blush, and frantic, bone-shaking action sequences that will simultaneously rock your world and neighbors’ walls. A statement from Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software, is available to view at the following location – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Za0ho-vvkXU.

 

“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.”
