It’s been going on 13 years since Duke Nukem Forever was first announced, and you’d think that the closing of its developer, 3D Realms last year, and the effective cancellation of the game would be enough to take down the Duke for good.
Well, think again…maybe.
During a recent appearance at MAGfest (Music and Gaming Festival), the voice actor who portrays Duke Nukem, John St. John, jokingly avoided answering an attendee’s question regarding the long, long, long, long, long awaited shooter, Pixel Enemy reports.
“I’m not allowed to speak on that subject, sir,” said St. John. In response to the subsequent booing his response elicited, St. John jumped back in to say, “No, no. Don’t be disappointed. Read between the lines. Why am I not allowed to talk about it?”
So there you have it. Duke Nukem Forever will be hitting store shelves in fall 2019! Thanks for bringing this 70 year on again/off again Nukem melodrama to an end Mr. St. John.
Actually, given that 3D Realms' CEO Scott Miller recently revealed that the developer is planning to release tons of Duke content over the next year, Forever could very well find itself off of life-support sometime in the near future.
