2K Games and Gearbox Software have shipped Duke Nukem Forever to retailers. The game will be available on June 10 internationally, and June 14 in North America. Gamers who pre-order the title from select outlets will get to play the demo, which launches on June 3 for all platforms.
Created over the span of 15 years, Duke Nukem Forever was developed by designers, artists and programmers at 3D Realms under the direction of game industry icon, George Broussard.
Under the production of Gearbox Software, Triptych Studios, Piranha Games and many other contributors worked to produce the triple-A title for Xbox 360, PlayStation3 and Windows PC.
"Duke Nukem Forever is the game that was once thought to be unshippable, and yet here we are, on the precipice of history,” says Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “Today marks an amazing day in the annals of gaming lore, the day where the legend of Duke Nukem Forever is finally complete and it takes that final step towards becoming a reality.”
