Duke Nukem Forever delayed

It’s official. Duke is delayed. Now coming June 10th (or the 14th in the US)

Randy Pitchford made the announcement today via a pretty funny video.

 

See you in June Duke!

    I’d rather a delay than an unfinished game. Tweak the hell out of it guys.

    Delayed again huh? Meh, what’s one more delay right, I mean it’s only taken them 13 some-odd years to release it!

    Eh. I guess a summer release isn’t bad.

    At first I thought this was an early April fools joke. How about next time, they don’t announce the release date until the game is actually finished?

    Well that’s alright as it would have been coming the day I got back off holiday otherwise. Now I don’t need to rush home!

    Well, I guess it doesn’t make a big difference right …. 169 months versus like 168 months late.

    If I hadn’t played the game myself I’d be deeply suspicious that this is just a cruel joke

    Haha, I had a feeling this would happen. Its actually pretty hilarious, as is Randy’s video. I’m totally OK with it, too much to play as it is already. :-)

  • Ghostwise

    Would it be shocking if it was cancelled at the last minute? lol

    Oh, the irony.

    “Duke never comes early”… nice lol. Well it’s not like we haven’t already waited long enough for this game, so what’s a little longer, right? If the extra time makes it a better game, then I can be patient. Duke deserves the extra polish! And besides, this will just give me some extra time to work on my mountain of a backlog anyway.

    This surprises no one. At least it’s not pushed back a year or anything.

    I’m just glad they aren’t switching to another game engine. At this point, you know it’s going to be a little dated and a month or 2 delay will not change that. Now if it is buggy as well, then they will be in real trouble. Better to spend a couple months making sure it is solid.

    Probably for the best. It was going to release the last week of the Gears 3 beta and a week before Brink. They picked a horrible release date considering June-Aug there’s nothing great coming out.

    fail

    LOL! This has to be on purpose. PItchford seems like the kinda guy who likes jokes like this. Im embarrassed to say this, but I was surprised when I read this earlier

    Can’t say I’m the least bit surprised, seeing how Duke is known to arrive late. Always late. I guess we share the same quality. Lateness.

    But now 4 days later? Pretty damn lame.

    I dont know what to think… Actually, it has been so long that I have burnt myself out on wanting DNF to even be released…. Now I could care less….

    They really should have shot for a April 1st release for this game. Missed marketing opportunity.
