PAX 2010: Duke Nukem Forever Coming To PS3, Xbox 360, PC In 2011
Today at PAX, Gearbox Software confirmed the rumors about Duke Nukem Forever. They've taken over development of the long-delayed shooter from 3D Realms.
"Clearly the game hadnít been finished at 3D Realms but a lot of content had been created," Gearbox Software head Pitchford told the Wall Street Journal. "The approach and investment and process at 3d Realms didnít quite make it and it cracked at the end. With Gearbox Software we brought all those pieces together. Itís the game it was meant to be."
In DNF, aliens are once again attacking the planet and it's up to Duke to stop them. He'll use over-the-top weaponry to vanquish pig cops, enormous bosses, and other extraterrestrial threats. Duke will set aside some time to enjoy himself, too. Weightlifting, adult magazines, and basketball are among the side activities he can engage in.
Gearbox is developing the game for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. Its release is expected in 2011. In other words, there's plenty of time for the game's voodoo curse to wreak havoc on Gearbox and publisher 2K Games.
