Default Duke Nukem Forever Delayed Until June, Gearbox Maintains Sense of Humor

Quote:
We know, we know, as crazy and unfathomable as it sounds, Duke Nukem Forever's launch is being pushed back. Who would have guessed? Okay, so maybe everyone could have anticipated yet another delay, but at least this time it's only being held back a month and will ship in June (hopefully) instead of May, as originally planned (actually, it was originally supposed to ship over a decade ago). Still, we have to hand it to Gearbox for keeping a sense of humor about the whole thing, which is really all they can do given DNF's comical history of delays.

"We thank Duke's fans for their continued patience -- I promise this won't take another 15 years," says 2K President Christoph Harmann in a statement.

But it's not the written statement that has us willing to let 2K take another mulligan. Check out this video announcing the delay:

eh it's only a month push back. It's not like starcraft 2 that kept getting pushed back by years at a time..

A lot of games these days have been delayed for technical issues.

I expected something like this would happen to the unreleasable game I love their sense of humor, and it's probably a marketing trick.

And people should not complain about this 0.6% delay. Yes, it's only about 0.6%.
