In 1997, Duke Nukem was announced. It's been through at least three engines, two companies, and over a dozen years of "development" time, but it seems we're on the verge of actually seeing the game released.
That is, if this isn't another gigantic joke of an announcement!
Duke Nukem Forever will see release on the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Development is being finalized by Gearbox Software. Gearbox released Borderlands, and its three DLC expansions. Gearbox is also responsible for the Brothers in Arms series, one of the most respected PC game series available. 3D Realms, the previous developer for Duke Nukem Forever, essentially shut down their studio last April. It was said that they'd still be around in terms of IP for other incarantions of Duke Nukem (licensing the name for a portable game collection, for example), but there's been no word from anyone out there. At a bare minimum, the people that were actively working on Duke Nukem Forever are long since gone, laid off from 3D Realms.
2K Games had a live booth feed showing several people playing the game. While the video wasn't high enough quality to determine how the graphics look, etc, it did show some interesting scenarios, such as Duke drawing on a whiteboard. Check out these videos below.
