The lights are on
Duke Nukem Forever has been in development for a little while. To give you a sense of just how much time has passed since it was first announced, Gran Turismo--a series known for its punctuality--saw releases 1-5 hit shelves in the intervening years. Skepticism turned to actual anticipation last September, when Gearbox unveiled Duke Nukem Forever in playable form at PAX. OK, so the game was really, really, real. A lingering question remained, however: When would we be able to finally take this thing home and play it?
As it turns out, we now know when that's happening.
"Somehow the guys at Game Informer magazine discovered Duke Nukem Forever's launch date before I did," joked Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software and executive producer of Duke Nukem Forever. "But I cannot imagine any better video game news source team than Game Informer to reveal the moment of truth for the most inconceivable, incorrigible and inspiring turn around story in the history of the video game industry – the coming of Duke Nukem Forever on May 3, 2011."
“The moment fans all over the world have been waiting for is almost here,” says Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “May 3, 2011 marks Duke’s return as he unleashes his brash and brutally honest wit on the world. His return is going to be epic and one that will make video gaming history!”
May 3 is the North American release date. May 6 is worldwide. Check it out below.

looks pretty nice to see a icon come back from the dead...
"I'd still hit it" - one of my all time favorite quotes
Yup...I'll get this once I've moved out...no point in giving my parents another reason to hate my love of games.
Took 'em *** near long enough.
May 3rd. That's the date hell freezes over, pigs fly, up becomes down, and Dan becomes the world champion of every game ever.
Truly, the end of times.
ohhhhh man i just crapped myself at the sear awesomeness of that trailer
Now this is a trailer you won't see on T.V.
The trailer looks awesome and all, and even though there was playable demos at recent gaming events such as PAX, I still have my doubts.
As many have said - I'll believe it when I see it.
looks pretty good. and hes right after 12 f-ing years it should be good.
I loved the first Duke Nukem game, and I'll rent DNF through GameFly.
In the tags, you forgot to add "Jesus comes back."
Cool I guess.
Haha. No matter what score this game gets I'm going to be an idiot and buy the hell out of it. Hail to the king, baby!
Duke Nukem it only tok forever seems pretty cool, but i'm not a big fan of the voice acting so much of Duke.
The only reason he came back is because they messed with the girls. Hilarious!
this is going going to be fantastic, but will it be worth the wait?
Love what this is filed under.
Also, over 200k views? Sheesh, hail to the king!
Hail To The King Baby!!!!! I can not wait for this game. Im going to preorder this when I get my tax returns. Im here to kick ass and chew bubble gum, and im all out of gum!!!
