Duke Nukem Forever to be released on May 3 ... really!

In just a few months, the game with perhaps the longest development time in history will finally be released. Game Informer has posted up word that Duke Nukem Forever will be released by developer Gearbox Software and publisher 2K Games on May 3 in North America. Europeans and the rest of the world will be able to get the game on May 6.

The first person shooter started development at 3D Realms way back in 1997 and was in continuous development at that developer until 2009 when a legal dispute between the developer and 2K Games caused 3D Realms to dismiss its internal development staff. The dispute was settled in 2010 and Gearbox Software got the rights to continue the game's development as well as the IP for the Duke Nukem franchise. But will the 14 year wait for this game be worth it?
