Duke Nukem Forever goes gold

Off all the games in history, the most fabled and longest delayed is Duke Nukem Forever. People have actually grown old and died waiting for this game to launch. The current launch is set for next month. The game better be epic or 2K and Gearbox Software will have lots of explaining to do. Word has surfaced that the game is already selling well with lots of game stores and resellers ordering the title in anticipation of gamer hoards coming forward.

2K and Gearbox have announced that Duke Nukem forever has gone gold. The feat was apparently accomplished with orders on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC platforms. The launch is set for June 10 in the US and June 14 internationally. "Duke Nukem Forever is the game that was once thought to be unshipppable, and yet here we are, on the precipice of history," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. "Today marks an amazing day in the annals of gaming lore, the day where the legend of Duke Nukem Forever is finally complete and it takes that final step towards becoming a reality."

The latest game in the franchise has been in development for 15 years. With all that time, it had better have no issues. The demo of the game will be offered on June 3 to those in the First Access Club. To get in that club you need to pre-order the game.
