Demo is 'important' for Duke Nukem Forever
PAX attendees were among the first gamers to get their hands on the oft-delayed Duke Nukem Forever. Enthusiasts that missed the event may also get a chance to try out the title before its 2011 launch, though, as Gearbox CEO Rand Pitchford said a demo was "important" to market DNF.
Now that the cats out of the bag we can actually make those plans. Now we can get with retailers and figure out the launch window, and figure out demo timing, and work with the first-parties on that", Pitchford told VG247. "I think that is an important thing to do."
As VG247 notes, Gearbox Software owns the rights to Duke Nukem after acquiring them from now-defunct studio 3D Realms.
After nearly 12 years of development, Duke Nukem Forever is set for a 2011 launch, for all three high-definitation platforms.
