We've been hearing rumors of the imminent launch of Duke Nukem Forever since the early 1970s, and yet, every time we get a new release date, we get excited all over again. Like the first time.
Today, the Dallas Business Journal has "confirmed" that the long awaited sequel to Duke Nukem is hitting consoles in 2008.
"We haven't formally announced any platforms for DNF," wrote 3D Realms President Scott Miller in an e-mail exchange. "But, of course hitting the big three makes the most sense (PC, PS3, 360)."
He went on to sound a note of caution: "we may miss the mark by a month or two, but I feel very confident that we're on target this time."
Miller also confirmed the existence of a downloadable Xbox Live Arcade version of Duke Nukem 3D, which will feature on-line multiplayer support, Xbox Live achievements, on-line score boards, and a co-op mode. "We're really excited about bringing classic Duke to the 360," said Miller during an interview with the Dallas Business Journal. "We're talking to Microsoft about getting a release slot sometime this year."
