If you’re responsible for one of the most delayed games of all time, and you have to announce yet another hiccup in the roadmap, you may as well try to make people laugh when you break the bad news. Gearbox Software has admitted that Duke Nukem Forever will take a little longer to arrive (again), with the release pushed back from May 3 to June 10 at the earliest, and they’ve used a tongue-in-cheek video to announce it.

Now, international buyers will be able to pick up Duke Nukem Forever from June 10 2011, while the US will get it a few days later on June 14. No reason for the delay has been given, but we’re guessing there are a final few bugs needing to be ironed out. Still, another month hardly seems all that dramatic, when you consider the game was first announced all the way back in 1997.
