It’s only been fourteen years since its announcement, but Duke Nukem Forever will be on store shelves on that date, released for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Keep in mind, back in 1997, Microsoft hadn’t released Windows 98 yet (let alone the Xbox 1), and the PS One was still 3 years away.
The information was revealed to Game Informer.
Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software:
“Somehow the guys at Game Informer magazine discovered Duke Nukem Forever’s launch date before I did. But I cannot imagine any better video game news source team than Game Informer to reveal the moment of truth for the most inconceivable, incorrigible and inspiring turn around story in the history of the video game industry – the coming of Duke Nukem Forever on May 3, 2011.”
Christoph Hartmann, President of 2K:
“The moment fans all over the world have been waiting for is almost here. May 3, 2011 marks Duke’s return as he unleashes his brash and brutally honest wit on the world. His return is going to be epic and one that will make video gaming history!”
