This trailer from Duke Nukem Forever features Gearbox Software's Randy Pitchford with a special announcement about the upcoming first-person shooter, having fun with the revelation that the game's release is being pushed back a little over a month. The game is now slated for international release on June 10, followed by a North American release on June 14, a turnabout from the game's previously announced May dates, where the North American edition was to come first. No reason is offered for the delay, though the trailer does have a tagline saying "Duke Never Comes Early." 2K Games has also issued this press release on the topic, but that sheds no further light on this either, though it quotes 2K president Christoph Hartmann saying: "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." Here's the embedded version of the trailer.

I'd enjoy seeing it, but maybe the universe has simply moved on and Duke Nukem shall always exist only in the 90s. But no, NO, it must be released. It must.
If DN is a joke, let it be a joke because DNF released and it wasn't popular, or because people thought DN was somehow amusing, not because DNF never released.. IT MUST RELEASE
Duke Nukem Fornever man. Fornever.
This announcement was hilarious, but I'm honestly starting to feel like we're standing at the car door to get in and each time we reach for the handle, they pull up 10 feet... for the 165th time! Eventually, I bet they're just going to drive off laughing forever. It would almost be poetic if this never came out.
