The upcoming return of Duke Nukem will have to wait a little while longer. Gearbox announced on Thursday they’ve decided to delay Duke Nukem Forever, below you’ll find out why. In an interview with Eurogamer, Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford had this to say about the delay;
“There is always uncertainty and we use experience and trends to help us be predictive. We are not perfect when it comes to predicting uncertain outcomes, but we are perfect at being committed to our goals and working relentlessly towards them.”
“I think we may have been able to force May, but we think that would’ve introduced risks that would not have served gamers who have waited as long as we have to finally play Duke Nukem Forever.”
He went on to hail the patience of Duke fans, promising that the delay was in their best interest.
“We are driven by fans who are as anxious for the game to finally be released as we are,” he insisted. “The continued support of our fans does miracles for our morale and that drives quality and performance. It’s for the fans that I am confident this slight schedule adjustment is the right thing to do.
The delay take the Duke from a May 3rd release to June 14th, but if it makes the game better, who can argue with it?
