2K Games announced at PAX 2010 that Duke Nukem Forever is currently in development at Gearbox Software for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game is expected to arrive in 2011, missing its original launch date by just over twelve years.
During 2K's live stream of the reveal, Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford stated that Duke Nukem Forever would release in 2011, not 2010 as reported by the Wall Street Journal.
"The approach and investment and process at 3d Realms didn't quite make it and it cracked at the end. With Gearbox Software we brought all those pieces together. It's the game it was meant to be," Pitchford told the Wall Street Journal. According to Pitchford, Gearbox began working on Duke Nukem Forever in 2009.
