It’s the gaming industry’s biggest joke and holds the record for the game with the longest developement phase.
But it’s finally coming out in 2011!
Gearbox (creators of Borderlands) and 2k Games today announced that Duke Nukem: Forever does still exist and it will be coming to the Xbox 360 in 2011:
“All great things take time… a lot of time,” laughs Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “After a hiatus from the video game world, Duke Nukem is back and better than ever. The return of the King from the glory days of shooters will satisfy our patient, die-hard fans, as well as a new generation of bubble gum-chewing, flat top and shades-wearing bad-asses. Make no mistake about it – Duke Nukem Forever is a testament to the era of when shooters were bodacious and fun.”
Even more stunning was the fact that a playable demo was available at the PAX event!
“Hail to the king, baby! It’s unbelievable, it kicks ass and it’s totally going to happen!” said Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software, “Gearbox has enabled die-hard key Duke Nukem franchise builders and skilled veteran game makers to stand together and deliver. All gamers deserve a happy ending and after all of us gamers feeling the full range of emotions about Duke Nukem Forever, I am thrilled to be in a position with the trust, power and means to make it happen. Am I crazy? Balls of steel, baby, balls of steel!”
The return of the Duke will take players back to when shooters were just about the shooting!
But can it stand alongside the fresh faced shooting newbies? Only time will tell.
But the Duke is back…..
