This latest story doing the rounds really impressed me with 2K Games. If you missed it, Examiner reported on the PR firm that was canned by 2K because of some ‘choice’ tweets from the firm aimed at game journalists and blogs that gave Duke Nukem Forever really bad reviews, or were “venomous” with their reviews. One would think 2K would welcome anyone trying to defend a brand of theirs against bad press, but not so, they apparently stand for fair play when it comes to the subject of reviews.
Yes, really. After over 15 years the Duke really has been released.
Yes, no more delays, as it has been announced that the game forever in development, Duke Nukem Forever, has gone gold for release.
2K Games and Gearbox Software announced that it will be available at retailers on June 10, 2011 internationally and on June 14, 2011 in North America.
Gearbox’s Randy Pitchford has outed Duke Nukem First Access Club members will be the first to get their hands on the Duke Nukem Forever demo beginning June 3, 2011. Then on June 10, 2011 we can join and the the US get it on June 14, 2011. The demo will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.
Wow. What a surprise that is. Yes, I know sarcasm is not an attractive feature in (most) people, but what more can you expect when it comes to hearing that a game already delayed almost 13 years is being delayed again?
However, it’s not all bad. In a slightly humorous (yet, utterly serious) YouTube video, Gearbox’s Randy Pitchford announced that the game will miss its May 3 release and will now arrive only a month later on June 10 Internationally and June 14 in North America.
A new Duke Nukem Forever trailer has been released for your enjoyment. Not really safe for kids. It is Duke after all.
