People often when discussing Gearbox Software and its CEO Randy Pitchford talk about the mess that was Aliens: Colonial Marines and Duke Nukem Forever – but I haven’t trusted them since E3 2004 when they showed off Brother in Arms: Road to Hill 30.
The sequel to Gearbox Software’s excellent FPS RPG game Borderlands, Borderlands 2 is now available for digital download from Steam and from all good retail shops. The game costs £29.99 on PC while it costs £39.99 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. You can also buy a Borderlands 2 Four-Pack on Steam for £89.99 which means you are buying three and getting one free.
Duke Nukem Forever will now be released on 14th June in North America and on the 10th June everywhere else. It was scheduled to be released worldwide in early May but they seem to have been too optimistic with that date.
Whatever is making Gearbox Software delay the game must be significant because of the new date set. Of course Duke Nukem Forever the game is use to delays and such so this should have been expected. At least Gearbox Software seems to be seeing the funny side of things.
Duke Nukem Forever was scheduled to be released more than a decade ago but the wait shouldn’t be must longer for Duken Nuken fans. However it better be worth it in the end.
