Duke Nukem Forever Promised in 2011

The long-troubled -- and previously aborted -- development of Duke Nukem Forever is getting a new life, as 2K Games revealed Friday morning at PAX that the game is not only in development but is playable on the show floor.

The game's coming to the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC for 2011. Gearbox Software is finishing development, after the demise of originator 3D Realms about a year ago, despite repeated commitments to revive the game. A version for the iPhone shipped last summer.

"I can't believe it, either," said Gearbox Software CEO and President Randy Pitchford in the livestream showing off the game. " You guys [the crowd at PAX] are among the first people in the world to play it.

"I know it's hard to believe, but it's totally real. We can't let the Duke die."
