Duke Nukem Forever Goes Gold

Normally, we don’t report news of games going gold. After all, when a game is hitting its release date, it’s not really news. But when that game is Duke Nukem Forever, it’s a whole different story.

Gearbox announced in a tweet today that Duke Nukem Forever has gone gold. DNF has had more release dates than Elizabeth Taylor had husbands. From its announcement back in 1997 to going gold today, the development of this game has been a sordid saga of delays, revamps, engine changes, and more.

Since 2K assumed the reins of the franchise last year, the development has proceeded apace. Now, the day that many believed would never come has arrived. Duke’s coming back, and the discs are being pressed right now. It’s almost hard to believe that it’s actually going to launch. I may not believe it until I can hold it in my hand.

DNF will land in stores on June 14, and will be available on PC, PS3, and XBox 360.

I look foward to playing what is basically the last game 3d Realms ever made.

A shame when they had a perfect track record. Few companies can really say that (as far as the quality of their products, I mean)

In the words of the late, great Randy Savage…
