Duke Nukem Forever goes gold

After almost 15 years of developments and twists, Duke Nukem Forever is finally finished. 2K Games and Gearbox announced that the title was passed in Gold, which means that the final version was sent to manufacturers of discs and boxes will be delivered to dealers. According to a statement posted on the site of Gearbox, the first demos will be released on June 3 and will be reserved for members of Duke Nukem First Access Club.

The international release is confirmed for June 10. The U.S. will have to wait four more days. The game will be available for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Pre-orders are open and a collector version Balls of Steel will be sold at the same time. One of Vaporware the most famous in the history of computing will eventually be sold.

It was included in our ranking of hight-tech flops of 2009 because in May 2009 3DRealms, who had announced work on the title in 1997, had finally dissolve the team developing the game after a legal dispute with Take Two Interactive. Gearbox has decided to resume work in September 2010 (see "Duke Nukem Fornever maybe not?).

He sorted and analyzed the work of his predecessors. He decided to use the Unreal Engine 2 graphics engine. The studio had originally planned release in May He pushed for June (see "Duke Nukem Forever delayed ... (do not laugh)"). Earlier this month, he finally gave the minimum and recommended configurations.

The passage in gold is a symbolic moment for this icon. The saga is still not complete. It remains to be seen whether the public will appreciate this hero from another century.
