Duke Nukem Forever: It's Happening!

Gearbox Software, just ahead of the opening of PAX 2010, announced to the world that the game-that-will-not-die is finally on the home stretch after more than a decade in development. Duke Nukem Forever, the sequel to 1996’s Duke Nukem 3D has been “close to release” countless times since it was originally announced in 1997. Since then, DNF has spawned a string of release dates that never panned out, some of the most effortless humor that’s ever existed, and a fierce legal battle between publisher Take-Two and original-developer 3D Realms.

After hitting financial trouble in 2009, 3D Realms closed its doors and entered legal proceedings with Take-Two over the game they should have delivered more than ten years earlier. Though we still don’t know the exact details, we know now that Gearbox got involved shortly thereafter, taking over development of Duke Nukem Forever in late ‘09; presumably after a settlement was reached between 3D Realms and Take-Two.

With over a decade worth of assets to work from, Gearbox was able to make short work of things; showing off a playable demo today at PAX. Described as being in the ‘polishing’ phase, Duke Nukem Forever, featuring both single and multiplayer modes, is slated for release sometime in the next year on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. CEO Randy ‘The Man’ Pitchford said that Gearbox will announce more details concerning ‘the future of the IP’ during their panel at PAX 2010.

Is this just the beginning of a new Duke franchise? Will Gearbox announce a release date, only to delay it by one day; just for old time’s sake? Are you freaking out that Duke Nukem Forever is finally coming out? Or is it just to- little-too-late for the thirteen year old franchise? Sound off in the comments below!

This actually does not surprise me. Since I heard about the whole Duke Nukem Fornever thing I've been wondering whether it's really all just some elaborate marketing scheme: You take a game and make it seem like it will never be released while all the while keeping it up to date with the latest tech and finally when it becomes so infamous that if it ever came out everyone would just have to get it. Quite clever.

Course, that's probably not the actual reason, but it's still a pretty hilarious scenario to think about.

I lost all interest in this game in the time it took them to get it out.

Hey guys! If Duke Nukem Forever is coming out, that means Episode 3 HAS TO COME OUT! In the next or 5 years of course.

Never played a Duke Nukem game, but this is certainly interesting. I'll probably get it if it gets good reviews.

Might play DN3D before it comes out...

If this game doesn't measure up to Yahtzee's review, I will be disappoint.

It is now official, Gearbox (Borderlands) is now the sole owner of the Duke Nukem IP.

I can sense good things coming out of this.

I'm lucky. I think the worst thing I'd say was "If Duke Nukem Forever comes out, I'll play it."

...Of course, there's still a chance I'll regret that too.

Guys, I've now seen the game in action.
Well, the demo.
Before Christmas 2011. It looks like it'll be worth it.

May 3 release date confirmed for NA.

So it's decided, the world ends on May 3.

Duke Nukem Forever... has a definitive release date.

I can die, now. I have seen the impossible.
