Welcome to Player Attack!
When 2K Games presents a very special message from Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford, you know it's something you'd better listen to. And, this time, you'd better listen good - if you want to know when you can get your hands on Duke Nukem Forever.
...so it's not a serious delay (well, it's serious in the sense that it's happening, but it's not serious in that you'll only have to wait less than a month longer before you get your hands on the Duke and his Holsom Twins. It was due May 3rd in the US, May 6th everywhere else - it's now coming to the US on June 14th, a few days after it hits the rest of the world on June 10th.
Duke never comes early.
