Duke Nukem Forever delayed until June; no surprises here
Looks like you’re going to have to wait a little bit longer to play Duke Nukem Forever; about one month to be exact. The game, which has been in development for close to 15 years now, has been delayed until June 14th in North American and June 10th internationally.
What’s another 30 days of waiting, right? At least we know the game is still coming out.
“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.”
We can’t say we’re all that surprised at this announcement, after all, this is Duke Nukem Forever we’re talking about here. As you can tell from the following video, at least the development team has a sense of humor about the situation.
“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.”
