The lights are on
It's really real. Duke Nukem Forever is being published by 2K Games and developed by Gearbox. Here are our first hand impressions.
Here are some quick notes notes on the game, courtesy of Andrew Reiner's time with the PAX demo:
Here's a blurry picture of the demo room. You can see that the game is running on the Xbox 360:
Here's a picture of Andy playing the demo:
Pitchford told us that Gearbox started working on the game a year ago and that the company owns the IP. We'll bring you more information on the game as soon as we can. Man, Duke Nukem Forever is actually coming out in 2011. Who would've thought?

Duke's back big time!
With Gearbox's name on the cover I feel safe that their wont be another delay.
I still play Duke Nukem 3D on my iPhone... one of the best iPhone ports (and games) of all time!
This is sweet. Maybe it was worth the wait to see Duke done right on current gen technology. Now if we could only get some Id's classics brought back. Heretic in HD anyone? How about a new System Shock? The PC shooters of the 90's hold so much potential for gaming goodness.
so, is it for only 360? that would suck, i would love to see that on my PS3.
I swear to everything that is holy and unholy if this is a prank, my temper tantrum will my worldwide, bloody, cruel, and merciless
but if it isn't, then hail to the king baby I am ready to kick ass and chew bubble gum
I've played 3D, and Manhattan Project, and was impressed with those titles, and after seeing how much time it toke for Duke Nukem to get a follow up game, I though it would never exist after 3D Realms closed their doors to the project, but thank god Gearbox managed to save our bada** from 8 years in hell.
Is this real life?
I've never played Duke Nukem, but in a way, I feel like even I've been waiting for this to come.
Cool, I'll play it.
Considering Duke is being represented as the Chuck Norris (more or less) I wonder if this will sit well with fans of that whole deal... or will they flip out and call foul, clearly oblivious to the timeline?
Now this is some GOOD News finally.
I love Duke Nukem and I can't wait for this game to come out. I have complete faith that gearbox will help release this game, and that it will be awesome.
Yeah!!!After 12 years we finally get to play this awesome game. :D
