Duke Forever release pushed back a month

It was all too good to be true, wasn’t it? A release date set in stone, May 3, for what’s probably the world’s most belated game ever. Well, turns out Duke has been subject to one more delay. Take-Two Interactive announced this morning that the game will now hit North American store shelves on June 14. Strangely, the international release will come four days before the U.S. and Canadian launch.

Not above making fun of itself, Gearbox Software released the following video for the occasion:

Of course, a delay of one month and change is like a grain of sand in the desert of Duke Forever delays. We’re talking about a game that was originally supposed to come out in 1998. Here’s hoping this latest delay will be the last.

    It takes time to censor out all the nudity and violence to get the pg-13 rating they want

    Possibly because of the not so great comments in many previews around the web?

    If they delay it again I think I’m going to call it: Duke Nukem Forever kills Gearbox.

    This video is one more reason I have hope that Duke will be good.

      Nah, Gearbox has made bad games with delays before. Then they’ll make games people apparently really like, like Borderlands, to make up for it.

    Hey now, if you’re going to delay it til the start of June, you might as well delay it until July 4th.
