Duke Nukem Forever delayed until June, we call shenanigans

The Duke never comes early, we're told

TODO alt text

Gearbox Software has delayed Duke Nukem Forever by over a month. Typical, right? A little too typical, we suspect. After all, delaying the most delayed game in all of gamedom is almost too much of a coincidence. And after watching the studio's tongue-in-cheek delay announcement video (complete with its own delay slogan and props, no less), we're guessing this is one Duke push-back that was planned all along.

It's possiblethis is a genuine delay, in which case this ishilariouslyironic and Gearbox is just really adept at damage control. It's also possible I completely misused the word ironic, but hey, when in Rome...

The new launch date (for those who skipped the video) is June 14th for North America and June 10th internationally.
