If you have been following the saga of the video game Duke Nukem Forever, it has spanned over a decade. Duke was a very popular character in the early games back in the 90’s, and then a long list of delays and promises unfulfilled relegated the game to the status of vaporware; and it pissed off a lot of fans along the way.
With the announcement that Duke Nukem Forever was back in development more recently most gamers didn’t expect much to really happen. Then things actually started to happen and shit got real with an official US launch date of May 3, 2011. Unfortunately developer of the game 2K has announced a delay. The good news is that this is the shortest delay in the franchise history according to 2K. The new launch date is June 14 in the US and June 10 internationally.
We have no explanation of why the game was delayed at this point. You can see a statement from Gearbox President Randy Pitchford above. If you believe there will be no further delays, you can pre-order Duke Nukem Forever over at Amazon.
