Imagine That: Duke Nukem Delayed. Again


One more delay for the road, huh? Yes, Duke Nukem Forever will not make its promised release date of May 3. Old habits die hard, clearly.

So when, if ever, will this near-mythical manshooter be released instead? I’ll let Randy ‘not Pitchfork’ Pitchford explain all…

So there’s that. June 14 in the US, June 10 everywhere else. *Apparently*. That is a fine way to announce it, at least. Well done, Mr Duval Magic.

Delays, delays, again with the delays. Plus ce change. What happened this time, do we think? Standard delays, last-minute polishing, or perhaps a decision to tweak the notorious arse-slapping multiplayer thing in response to the web-wide “what the hell are you doing?” response? I am merely speculating wildly, and have no factual basis for it whatsoever.

June it is, then. It’s never straightforward for this game, is it?

    duke nukem forever is a cursed game that is doomed to never be released.

    hey man, for what it’s worth, thank god. Let’s hope they use the extra … month (???) to make this thing actually worth the wait. After all, well… most of us knows it’s gonna suck.

    I’m not surprised. But I am extremely amused.

    Bwahaha I knew Gearbox would do this! They are even only delaying it 2 weeks so you know it has nothing to do with production of the game itself. They are just trolling gamers, however I think it is awesomely hilarious. Within a fortnight, we were getting Mortal Kombat, Portal 2 and Duke Nukem Forever. My wallet says thank you and so does my belly. (Nobody likes to go hungry!)
