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.

Hopefully this gets good reviews. Every other game that has taken forever to release doesn't usually fair too well with the critics. Funny trailer, though.
Well after twelve *** years it should be!
I can't wait.
that was pretty funny. "I'd still hit it."
May 3rd will be a day all gamers alike will remember for generations to come.
The day Duke returned.
can't wait. I love his witty anecdotes. "I'd still hit it"
XDDDDD nice use of invaders must die. Using the prodigy in the trailer makes me want the game already
Long live the Duke!
I love how playful they are with this whole thing, and the game looks good to boot.
A hole has finally been burned in to my pocket. Here's the order that the money is falling out. MVC3, Zelda, Okamiden, and Duke Nukem
guerentee when april fools day comes along, Gear Box will say "We've got a delay"
I never thought I'd see the day.
looks a little better than the old one... that was a joke!
The should make a Duke Nukem movie starring the governor of California.
I like how the tags say "pigs flying" and "hell freezing over". Aside from that, I'm pretty excited for this game. I just hope it doesn't become the next Too Human, because we all know how that turned out.
Good stuff. But where the hell does all the naked girls come in. I mean why? Not that I'm against it.
" it looks like it is time to kick ass and chew buble gum, and I am all out of gume"
I am really happy with this trailer and for shore going to buy this game, but the question remains, are knewer and younger gamers going to fell like the duke is relevet to them
Haha this is probably in the running for greatest game of all time.
Wow this looks... just wow. At first I had no interest in the game whatsoever, but this trailer just brought it into my "must-play list". Good job Gearbox, keep up the good work.
