Gearbox on DNF Delay, Demo, DLC

Randy Pitchford's Twitter Feed has several tweets relating to Duke Nukem Forever and the just-announced delay to the first-person shooter. Among other things, the Gearbox president says: "Delay was NOT planned. Very difficult and expensive for us, but the right thing for fans," calls the delay "unavoidable," and that it is: "because of time to finish some things that our predictions were wrong about. Lots of unrevealed details, still," adding: "It's finishing and polish - some of our predictions about task completion and difficulty were inaccurate." He also mentions demo plans, saying:: "We have to finish the game. Demo news will come soon - hopefully before May," also touching on hopes to release mod tools, saying Demo news as soon as we can. No tools in box - would be nice to do but we haven't planned that," and, "Currently, there are no mod tools included with the game. But we love the idea of that and have done that in the past. We'll see." He also explains why the European version is coming first: "We release ASAP, which is June 10. In North America, games have to release on Tuesday. First Tues after 10th is 14th." Finally, looking forward, he mentions DLC plans: "After DNF is finished, we'll probably want to do some DLC and then think about the future." Thanks Big Download.
