Duke Nukem Forever pre-orders taken for May 31 2011 release

Dec 31, 2010

We've been writing about Duke Nukem Forever for years, and it seems our patience might finally be paying off. According to the Amazon pre-order page - which, along with GameStop and the official site - the much-anticipated title is expected to arrive on May 31 2011.

The announcement follows a legal battle by developers after 3D Realms folded back in May 2009, and which was only settled in May 2010. Gearbox Software took over development and promised a 2011 release, though given the title has been in the works since 1997, gamers took that news with more than a pinch of salt.

Now, it seems, Duke Nukem Forever really is on the way, with pre-orders being taken for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Windows 7 versions of the game. We'll only believe it when we see it drop into mailboxes, frankly.
