Duke Nukem Forever delayed again

Duke Nukem Forever delayed again Highly-anticipated game is set back yet again by developer.
Duke Nukem Forever was given new release dates earlier this week. The title will launch on June 10 internationally and in North America on June 14th. Back in January, 2K Games and Gearbox Software turned heads by announcing a May 3 release date for the game.

The delay is certainly not that long, but considering the title was first announced all the way back in 1997 and has become something of a running joke (Duke Nukem Whenever, Duke Nukem Fornever, Duke Nukem IfEver etc.) in the business over the past decade, yet another delay is just not what gamers want to hear anymore.

2K Games finally lost patience with original studio 3D Realms in 2009, suing it and linking up with Gearbox Software instead to develop the title. After Gearbox' major success with Borderlands, the developer used the cash to buy up all Duke Nukem Forever assets and Intellectual Property last year.

The title will be available as both a standard edition, and a "Balls of Steel Collectors Edition", available for PC and on both the Xbox 360 and PS3 console platforms when it launches.

I was not surprised when I heard this news, although I am also not annoyed by it. I look forward to playing the game :)

I saw the trailer on this and it made me crack up because the one-liners were directly along the lines of the ones used Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition.

My favorite "joke" name for the game is Duke Nukem Neverever.

True, true. It's not like a few months is gonna to knock off the upteen million years that we've spent waiting and waiting and waiting for this game.
