Well, I can’t say that this should come as much of a surprise, but Duke Nukem Forever has been delayed. Again. I know that a lot of gamers probably thought the delays were done since we’re only two months from its May release date, and Gearbox has taken the reigns, but time makes fools of us all.
Yesterday, Gearbox announced via the 2K Games YouTube channel that Duke fans would have to wait one extra month to get their hands on this long-awaited sequel. After 14 years I suppose another month doesn’t matter, although this does give doubters one more month of “It’s never coming out!” before DNF finally ships. At least Randy Pitchford and the Gearbox guys can laugh at the whole situation (and probably at us for believing it was coming) and I thought the video was a pretty clever way of breaking the bad news. If you ask me, I think Gearbox just wanted a chance to delay the game since 3D Realms seemed to enjoy doing it so much. Was it worth it Randy?
The new release date is June 14th in the United States and June 10th everywhere else. Check out their Youtube video below.
