Despite a shaky development cycle, anticipation for Duke Nukem Forever is still relatively high. Unfortunately fans will have to wait a little bit longer to get their hands on the game.

In a press release from 2K Games, the publisher has announced that Duke Nukem Forever will be delayed until June. More specifically, the game will be available on June 10 internationally and June 14 in North America for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

Developer Gearbox Software had originally announced an early May release, but the company needs a little more time to add some finishing touches. Gearbox president Randy Pitchford expressed his apologies for the delay.

"I’m very sorry for the added delay. We’ve all been working extremely hard and are very eager to deliver the game to you," he said. "I’ve been thinking of these lyrics from the great country song, ‘He’s The Duke’ – ‘He told us if we waited we could Come Get Some, but I never knew Forever was going to be so long.’ If you’re like me, June cannot come quickly enough."

Gearbox and 2K Games are certainly keeping a lighthearted tone in regards to the delay, as evidenced by the press release title: Duke Never Comes Early – 2K Games Announces Shortest Delay in the History of Duke Nukem Forever. As long as the game actually comes out in June, perhaps fans will be able to see the humor in all of this.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
