UPDATED 10:29 AM PST: Gearbox Software head Randy Pitchford confirmed during a presentation at PAX that Duke Nukem Forever is scheduled for release in 2011 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
Duke Nukem Forever is real! It’s being developed by Gearbox Software and being published by 2K Games, and it’s playable on the show floor at PAX this very second!
Few titles have achieved the kind of mythical status as this one, thanks in large part to its perennial absence despite continued leaks and hushed conversations suggesting that the game, while long thought dead, was still kicking and screaming somewhere. Turns out that somewhere has become Gearbox.
We have crews on the ground as we speak, so expect plenty more details and footage shortly. Break out the bubble gum, folks. Things are about to get crazy.
