Duke Nukem Forever has been delayed, again: June 10, 2011

  1. Duke Nukem Forever, the game that became infamous for being delayed indefinitely, has been pushed back once again. I know what you're thinking: no, this is not an early April Fools' joke. Sure, it's hilarious, but at the same time it's pretty sad.

    I really hope that it comes atleast this year if not in June.
    Guess it needs some polishing ...

    This isn't that big a deal. We already know that Triptych and Gearbox have been working hard on DNF, and have been able to give actual ingame footage instead of just a load of smoke and mirrors. So for them to delay by a month to get the game polished and working properly really isn't a problem.
    I'd much rather this than an on-time, buggy as hell release.

    On another plus, at least they haven't been reported as cutting the game up into little bits, to sell back to us later in the form of DLC.

    I'm in my 40's...
    ...so I'll have "shuffled off this mortal coil" by then.
    But I'm telling my eight-year-old son to keep himself physically fit...
    ...so that one glorious September morning, in 2038...
    ...he can go to Gamestop and pick up his copy.
    They may push it back then.
    It may become a generational affair. Receipts passed from parent to child.
    But someday, somewhere, someone may get the damn game.

    For a game, with such a primitive/louse storyboard, and graphics that are not particularly advanced nowadays, they sure take their time. I'm one of those famous fans who waited for Duke Nukem in 1999. And now, after 12 ******* years... pffh... I've grown up :|
  7. O.O

    I'm starting to thing this game is a joke of some sort.

    Might just be a marketing ploy.

    But I for sure would more than welcome their delay if it indeed is to polish the game
    Unlike some other developers *cough cough*
  10. The old fears for DNF are unfounded since there is no central, obsessive character in charge of the project. No cache will be lost between May and later this year so kudos to GB and Piranha for having the balls to polish (pun intended).

    Based on what the "big companies" have being releasing, i prefer to wait for a couple of months instead of buying a cheap bug piece of crap game.

    Even more ironic than this whole Duke Nukem fiasco, is the fact that it's named, well, "Forever".

    Releasing right after E3? I have a feeling we'll be seeing a big marketing push then :) . The June 14th NA release is a bit confusing though.

    Either way I'm actually revealed considering in the next couple of months both Portal 2 and Brink are coming out.

    Given Gearbox's track record, I say let's cut them some slack. If any developer can bring Duke to the finish line, these guys would be on top of the list.

    This game is cuerently on its 4th publisher and 3rd developer...lets not get our hopes up till its in our console or on our pc's lol.
  25. eh, it's only a console game ported to PC anyways. Not like it has worthy MP play.

    Prolly got delayed becouse of the uptight whiners not likeing something and getting it edited to make it for little children (which it never was for)
