Fans will not be happy about this, but after getting so close you knew the Duke Nukem saga had to have just one more turn before we get to the finish line. 2K Games and Gearbox Software just announced that Duke Nukem Forever has been delayed and will now hit stores on June 10, 2011 internationally, and June 14, 2011 in North America on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game was originally scheduled to be released this May.
The incredibly unapologetic Duke Nukem Forever is the video game realization of the ultimate Hollywood summer blockbuster on steroids. Starring the iconic and legendary titular character, Duke Nukem Forever promises to reinvent the key ingredients necessary to create a summer smash hit that’s boiling over-the-top with irreverent humor, catchy one-liners that will make your mama blush, and frantic, bone-shaking action sequences that will simultaneously rock your world and neighbors’ walls.
My only issue with how companies announce game delays is that they never tell us why. I guess they figure it might hurt sales, but leaving us to wonder to me is worse than saying we found a bug that was too big to ship the game with, so we are delaying it to ship the best possible game we can. I could be cool with that, but I hate when they delay things without any real explanation. Oh well, you have waited 15 years for this game, how do you feel about waiting six more weeks?
