It only took 14 years for the game to get released, but it’s finally here (kind of), Duke Nukem Forever now has an official release date of May 3, 2011 in North America and May 6th Worldwide. Gearbox Software has been latest group to do development work on the game alongside nine ex-3D Realms developers who have been working on it on their own. 2k Games will be publishing the game. For those of you not familiar with Gearbox, they were behind the very successful and highly entertaining, Borderlands which came out last year. Seeing as how I loved Borderlands, I have faith in these guys and their skills and hopefully Duke Nukem Forever will live up to the hype… but if it doesn’t, at least people can’t complain that the game never came out.
If you’re interested in more of the drama behind the release and development of this game the wikipedia page has a lot of good information on it.
