2K Games: Duke Nukem Forever definitely out next year

Believe it. It's happening!

2K Games has announced that they will finally be releasing George Broussard's mythical title Duke Nukem Forever to consoles next year.

Today they circulated a press release stating that Duke Nukem Forever will be released on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2011.

After the collapse of 3D Realms, 2K handed the game over to Borderlands developer Gearbox Software who will be showing the game off at PAX Prime 2010 this weekend in Seattle.

Christoph Hartmann said with a great deal of relief: "All great things take time... a lot of time. After a hiatus from the video game world, Duke Nukem is back and better than ever. The return of the King from the glory days of shooters will satisfy our patient, die-hard fans, as well as a new generation of bubble gum-chewing, flat top and shades-wearing bad-asses. Make no mistake about it - Duke Nukem Forever is a testament to the era of when shooters were bodacious and fun."

Gearbox's Randy Pitchford bubbled over with enthusiasm saying: "Hail to the king, baby! It's unbelievable, it kicks ass and it's totally going to happen! Gearbox has enabled die-hard key Duke Nukem franchise builders and skilled veteran game makers to stand together and deliver. All gamers deserve a happy ending and after all of us gamers feeling the full range of emotions about Duke Nukem Forever, I am thrilled to be in a position with the trust, power and means to make it happen. Am I crazy? Balls of steel, baby, balls of steel!"
