Vaporware no more: ‘Duke Nukem Forever’

Gaming, PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360

Duke Nukem ForeverThe Wall Street Journal reported today that Duke Nukem Forever — which was first announced in 1997 as a sequel to Duke Nukem 3D — is under development by Gearbox Software and is due within the next year.

The Journal reported that the game is in the “polishing phase” and would ship in 2010, but that is likely to slide into 2011. Playable demos of the mythical first-person shooter will be available this weekend at Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle.

Development of the game, already long overdue, stopped after the collapse of gaming studio 3D Realms in 2009.
