DAILY MANIFESTO

It Took FOREVER, But It's Finished

Posted on Tuesday, May 24 @ 09:08:58 Eastern by


This morning in my email inbox, I was notified that Duke Nukem Forever has "gone gold". Normally, I don't give two shits about news like this, but this is Duke Nukem Forever -- the game that has been synonymous with the word vaporware.

First announced in 1997 (I kid you not) by 3D Realms, Duke Nukem Forever has been on the bumpiest ride this industry has ever seen. A ride that almost came to a halt in 2009 when 3D Realms let the entire development team go due to lack of funding.

Take Two, who was to publish the title, fought to gain control over the IP and assets, eventually turning over development to Gearbox Software. Gearbox have done the unthinkable, and have actually succeeded in bringing Duke Nukem Forever to completion.

I know it's hard to believe, but Duke Nukem Forever is off to be printed onto retail discs, to then be shipped off to store shelves where fans waiting over 12 years will finally get to see what the King has been up to all this time.

For those of you who picked up Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition or have pre-ordered Duke Nukem Forever, you'll have "first access" to the demo on June 3rd. The game releases just one week later on June 10th, 2011. Come Get Some!
