Speculation time: DNF on May 31?

The famous Kaisersoze posted this via GBX forums:

May 31, 2011 hits on a Tuesday= new release day.
Major Nelson tweeted this new date via an Amazon
link. Amazon originally had a February release date.

Did 2k/Gearbox finalize the release date and slip the

info out?

George also posted another picture of pigs on his Twitter the same day

this new date was posted.

There might be some fire somewhere in this smoke.

Good release date for the game to kick off the summer.

Stay Tuned?


I would like to add the links to the sources he talks about!

MajorNelson via Twitter:

GeorgeB3DR via Twitter:

DNF will definitely be out in the first half of 2011!!!

Well I asked Randy and some marketing guys when they were on the ass side of the planet and it doesn't get more official than that. Regarding the release date, what they told me was that the February release date was not something that came from them - strangely they did defend shops making up such dates to grab sales, but oh well. The marketing guy said DNF is slated for an early 2011 release, when I asked for reconfirmation, he said that perhaps he should rephrase that and say it should definitely be out in the first half of 2011.

The German release date Connection has taken the Feb. 1 release date down. So now DNF hasn't got any release date there!

But interestingly the German website lists DNF with an April 15 release date!
According to my older news post about the leaked Gamestop release list DNF is listed for an April 15 release date.
I bet very soon will list DNF for the April 15 too!
So the leaked release list is a valid Gamestop list! The only question is if the list itself isn't made up by Gamestop with space holder release dates.

Please write your thoughts in the comment section!


According to a source that works for Gamestop the April 15 sounds real to him. This is what he had to say:
Actually, Gamestop doesn't list any specific release date until they get the official go-ahead from their suppliers. Therefore their TBA release dates are (confusingly) usually the last or first date of a month. So specific ones like this April 15th is sounding good to me.

Obviously, anything is subject to change but I'm liking the sound of this. Means it's going to be released on a Friday here in Europe.
(I'll check my networks at work tomorrow to see if there's any change in the release dates but I doubt it)



The list seems to be fake! Follow the discussion in where we came to this conclusion in here:

"DNF won't be shown during the 2010 Spike VGAs"

 Just so we're all clear, Duke Nukem Forever won't be shown during the 2010 Spike VGAs. Yes, the game is progressing on schedule and yes, more of will be shown in the near future, but both the game and its fans have been teased enough across the years. The next time we "bring it," as Duke himself would say, it will be something a bit more significant than a thirty-second television clip.


I'm out of words....major disappointment here!
I even dare to say now there WON'T BE ANY Duke at christmas at all!

Over and out...


2k Elizabeth thickens my guess! 

I don't have a time frame for you guys yet or any special details


NOT EVEN A FREAKING TIMEFRAME?! This christmas will be a sad one!


Joe Siegler on the GBX forums:

The end of the tunnel is near.

Always bet on Duke!

Leaked DNF release date?!


So DNF will release on April 15 2011?!
Not sure if this list is valid, because Deus Ex: Human Revolution is listed for June 15! The last time I checked it was still February 2011. Also I Am Alive on January 15 is highly unlikely! We haven't heard anything on it in quite some time!

History of the promises on more info

On November 1 I posted this video on the GBX forums where Randy says:
GBX will announce VERY SOON a more specific release date!!! Randy doesn't know how soon but it won't be long!
This video was captured around  October, so aprox. 2 months have past by now without any news.

On November 17 Chris F. a new GBX community manager posted the "Vote Duke! Spike Opens Most Anticipated Game Submissions" thread.One day later he replied in the same thread to the criticism about the lack of hype and media for the game:
Rest assured, Duke Nukem Forever is quite real. The game is progressing on schedule. We let thousands play it at PAX 2010. All the guys and gals involved can't wait to show more of it, and that time is fast approaching. I know it's been a tough wait, but there is a plan, things are in the works, and the second I can say more about when those things are coming, you'll be the first to know. I realize you don't know me all that well quite yet, but I think you'll be happy soon. Heck, that's part of why I was brought on here at Gearbox in the first place!

Then on Nov 24 Adam F. the Webmaster and PR guy at GBX replied to the cover art thread with:
"Soon. Soon..."

And the latest promise comes from 2K Elizabeth who had this to say:
But seriously, it's coming. I promise. I'm actually talking to Gearbox RIGHT NOW on my other monitor. It's good stuff.!&p=1291229#post1291229

It just has to be the Video Game Awards on Dec 11, this or Christmas!
