Trailer: http://www.gametrailers.com/video/re...09618?type=flv

Original:

Source: Game Informer

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.

I can't watch this.

It's like watching someone on the beginning stages of X Factor who truly thinks he can sing, only to sound like a dying cat. I feel uncomfortable.

I dunno if I am wrong, but it seems that Duke Nukem has a bit more brand power / brand recognition that Bulletstorm, I don't think it will be a huge issue.

Still so surreal to see Duke Nukem coming out....finally!

EDIT: The game better be Gold, I don't want any last minute bugs holding it up, now that we have a date.

Maybe. It was first announced April 28, 1997, which could make someone almost 14 years old if they were born on that date.
