Duke Nukem Forever Delayed – No One Surprised

In what has to be the least surprising news of the decade, Duke Nukem Forever has been delayed. Instead of shipping on May 3 as previously planned, it’s now slated for stores on June 14.

You know, maybe it’s just me, but I think I would have made sure that I could hit whatever release date I set for DNF, the most delayed game in the history of man. Still, at least the announcement was made in a fairly humorous way, using this video with Gearbox President Randy Pitchford.

I’m sure that Gearbox will ship the game at some point, barring the intervention of some sort of alien race or temporal anomaly. It may even be that they can’t ship the game, because doing so would sunder the fabric of our reality. I guess we’ll find out in June, right? June!

Or maybe it won’t ship at all, just like we told you would happen.

June 14 for US and June 10 for everyone else? What an insult.

@Phil Owen:
Oh please, the US always get their games earlier in about 95% of the time, and nobody sees it as an insult. So at least just grant us, the rest of the gamer world, this one game a bit earlier :)

anyway.. really no surprise that it’s delayed :D

Omg DNF delayed? Again?! I’m so shocked at this, I’m gonna not care. You honestly would figure a game such as this switched to another developer would try to keep on time with shipping and finishing the game due to how long it’s been “worked on”.
