Duke Nukem Forever Delayed Until June

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.

Ooo nice! And it comes with 113 free ringtones! That sounds like fun!

6.00 is over priced....we have all bought the game 1-3 times already.

Yeah, the SUPPOSEDLY new game looks great and everything, but what I want is for them to re-release the original DN3D so I can play that bad-ass again. It won't even install let alone run on my 64-bit Win7 machine.

Have you tried running it with Dosbox / Dfend Reloaded? Worked fine for me on Win7-64.

I'm guessing that they flipped the Domestic and international releases so they could shove more Strippers and prostitutes into the game.

Nothing like aiming to give Jack Thompson a Coronary

Randy Pitchford fake show to the max.

I'm tired of his shitty fake smiling all the time. This delay trailer shows their own priority: promoting Randy Pitchford instead of working on the game.

Lighten up... sheeesh

GAMES R SRS BZNS! ARGLEBARGLE!

Only on Mondays. The rest of the week is devoted to toast and butterscotch. Mmmmm.... butter scotch... .

True, from the video it looked like they were still fiddling with the graphics.

Not that fiddling with graphics means much at any point (bugs pop up there, too) but take anything you see with a grain of salt. It's possible the footage is old, and even more likely they said to people "open up something really cool and pretend you're working on it!"

Sounds like a marketing ploy.

Nah, if it was a marketing ploy they'd bump the date up by one day or something token like that.
