Duke Nukem Forever is Still Real, Come Get Some in May!


Duke Nukem Forever has long been considered vaporware, and it’s easy to understand why that is. After over a decade of development and tough financial times at 3D Realms, no one ever expected the game to be finished. So last fall’s revelation that 2K Games was forging ahead and had handed the reigns over to Gearbox Software to finally polish the game off for a release, the gaming world abroad exploded with glee.

But since then, things have been quiet, so no one could be blamed for continuing to feel skeptical about the game’s existence.

Fear not, Duke Nukem Forever doubters. 2K Games is here to reaffirm that the long-awaited sequel to Duke Nukem 3D is still very much alive. Not only that, 2K has gone one step further by setting a concrete launch date for the crass, tongue in cheek FPS. In North America, Duke Nukem Forever will ship on May 3rd for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, and internationally it’ll be available on May 6th. So it is coming out. For real this time. I mean it. I think…

See, there’s even final box art!

Still not buying it? Go pick up a copy of the Borderlands ‘Game of the Year’ edition for a membership certificate to the ‘Duke Nukem Forever First Access Club’ and first dibs on a playable demo to be released soon. I know, you probably don’t believe the demo exists either. But have faith, Duke Nukem Forever is almost here.
