Don't Believe Everything You Read About Duke

3D Realms made the mistake of speaking to mainstream media, meaning that what they felt was a "no comment" answer did not translate properly.  No, Duke Nukem Forever does not have a release date.

I'd like to address the article the Dallas Business Journal put up today.

In what appears to be an unfortunate turn of events, there seems to have been some confusion between what was 'off the record' and what was not. I suppose we're used to dealing with gaming press and not mainstream press. Lesson learned.

While we have internal targets, dates and goals, like every developer, we are not ready to share them. What's amazing about this is that the DBJ must have assumed that we'd actually announce a date to them, and not gaming press, and that even in the light of Scott's quote of "We can't make an official announcement.", the DBJ effectively did that. Lesson learned.

The release date is still 'when it's done', and will be until the appropriate moment. Platforms have not been finalized or announced. You can rest assured that we are moving toward a goal and that the recently released teaser trailer is the start of that process and seeing more of the game, sooner than later.

We apologize to gamers and websites everywhere for this series of events. Sometimes, you can be too trusting of people and assume things that come back to bite you. Lesson learned.

Watch this be the last time they speak to anyone outside of gaming media.

And I'd commend them for that. The mainstream media is really lousy, in case anyone hasn't noticed. I don't trust just about anything they say anymore.

mainstream media is the sh1ts, they destroyed many cultures that used to be obscure, and now every moron thinks he's a computer nerd because he spent 2k on a computer that he uses to check myspace and play movies on.

And I thought the media was driven by Britney Spears! Oh wait...you are right. Never mind.

Duke Nukem Forever will be released One year from the current date.

 I think they are not even making this game anymore, just keeping the name alive so nobody forgets about the little engine that couldn't.
