2K Games & Gearbox Software announced this morning that Duke Nukem Forever will get another delay. The new release date for the game is going to be June 10th internationally and June 14th in the U.S. When it does finally release it will be available for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. Christoph Hartmann, the president of 2K Games had this to say about the matter:
“In case you haven’t heard, Duke never comes early. 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.”
Randy Pitchford also made a statement addressing the delay:
“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.”
If you aren’t familiar with the franchise, don’t worry. Duke Nukem has been on hiatus for quite some time. Rumored that Duke Nukem would return at many times over the years, it’s unsuprising that Duke Nukem Forever see one final delay even if it is just a couple of weeks this time.
