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.

This game sucks. You don't even get to use real weapons or fight real people. You just shoot dumb aliens and robots and other kiddy stuff. I'll stick with realistic tactical shooters like CoD.

I'm sure it will still come out this year, but I'd rather not deal with the douchebaggery "THIS GAME SUCKZ!!!11!11!!1! COD IS BETTER TROLOLOL" from random little kids due to minor issues. More polish from one of my most favorite devs can't hurt.

<3 Duke, forever and ever.

Gearbox has only been working on the game for about 8 months, right? Seems terribly rushed to me. I'm sure it needs at least another 8 months to be up to snuff.

In theory they're finishing up what 3d Realms had, and aren't starting from scratch.

So you have an engine, lots of art assets that can probably be used, and at the very least a prototype and all the features mapped out. I'd say 8-9 months is doable if they're focused on getting the game finished.

Who the hell could have predicted THIS game to get delayed!

Some things just come out of nowhere and you're like....wow, really?!

In North America, games have to release on Tuesday. First Tues after 10th is 14th

Where the fuck does it state that shit? In the video game release by laws?

Release the fucking thing on the 7'th then......BASTARDS!

There should be a video of someone like Steve Ballmer jumping around on stage saying "DLC! DLC! DLC! DLC!" instead of "Developers! Developers! Developers!..." [...]

No, that would be too awesome.

Oh please, another "we'll see" comment about mod tools from a developer.
Same thing happened with Fallout 3. Mod tools came out within days of release, I believe. Maybe the day of; I forget.

He said they're busy making the game. It has to exist before mods are released and he even said he likes the idea of them down the road. So they haven't ruled it out. So no need to get your panties twisted, yet.

This is Gearbox's strategy: Keep pushing back the release by a month for the next 10 years, until they go under and someone else buys DNF and promises to finish it.

Are they that disorganised that they don't know whether they'll release mod tools or not? OK, don't answer that.

Some of us have been waiting over a decade for this game. I don't really give a shit if they ever release an SDK, just getting the game itself will be a coup at this point.

Doubt they will. Once released their sales of DLC will decrease.

They will probably include mod tools as a downloadable SDK?

I think it's cool our euro brethren are getting the release first since they get shafted on so many other things(dates, prices, etc).

YAY! For once....although I doubt this will be a day 1 purchase for me. Ive waited long enough for Duke, so I can wait a little longer for some objective reviews of the game...
