No Way! Duke Nukem Forever Is Actually Being Released!

[via Joystiq]

No. Effing. Way. After over a decade of languishing in production hell, the ultimate piece of vaporware is actually being completed and released. Joystiq is reporting that Gearbox Software and 2K Games are picking up the pieces of 3D Realms’ unfinished magnum opus Duke Nukem Forever, completing the game and officially releasing it. I remember anticipating this game when I was in JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL! It’s just that old. So the question remains: will the game be any good? Can it possibly live up to the massive expectations that gamers have built up after so long? Probably not, but I know that I, for one, will be curious enough to pick up a copy of the game, and I’m willing to bet that Gearbox and 2K are banking on that same curiosity drawing in a lot of customers. Even if the game stinks, they’ll probably still make a killing off it, especially since a lot of the work has already been done for them! The game will be released for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC sometime in 2011, according to Gearbox president Randy Pitchford. I’m really quite amazed by this piece of news, and even though they’re trying to make this an official statement of the game’s release, I’m still extremely skeptical that we’ll ever see a finished product. But after so many years of having this game dangled in front of my nose, can ya really blame me?
