exciting Pitchford interview had a meaty interview with Randy Pitchford (CEO of Gearbox) about the Duke.

Randy P.: We have it to the polishing stage, where we have it running on all the platforms and where we know it’s ready to ship.

 when as asked about a downloadable demo...
Randy P.: I think that is an important thing to do, and while I don’t have a date for that…
But one of the things about being able to keep it secret – well, my understanding is that 2K just told their retailers about the game for the first time this morning.

Markus Wilding, 2K PR boss: Yes, it’s true.

Randy P.:  There’s a reason for this is: if it had happened earlier, the expectation of promises could have come up and this is a game you don’t make promises about.
Now that the cat’s out of the bag we can actually make those plans. No we can get with retailers and figure out the launch window, and figure out demo timing, and work with the first-parties on that. We weren’t able to do that until this point, because if we did we risked damaging it even further.
