"Duke Nukem Forever" will be released on June 10 in Europe, Japan and Australia, and June 14 in North America

After over a decade of waiting for a follow-up to "Duke Nukem 3D", 2K Games has announced that "Duke Nukem Forever" has gone gold in time for its upcoming release date. 

"Duke Nukem" is a video game series that was originally released in 1991 for MS-DOS, and revolves around its protagonist, Duke Nukem. In 1993, "Duke Nukem ll" was released for MS-DOS and Game Boy Color, and in 1996, "Duke Nukem 3D" was released for several different platforms like MS-DOS, Nintendo 64, Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, PlayStation and Sega Saturn.

From 1998 to 2011, several spin-offs were created for "Duke Nukem" from "Duke Nukem: Time to Kill" to "Duke Nukem: Critical Mass." 

For nearly two decades, different video game developers have been working on the sequel to the 1996 "Duke Nukem 3D," called "Duke Nukem Forever." From 1997 to 2009, game developer 3D Realms worked on the game, and from 2009 to present, Triptych Games and Gearbox Software have collaborated on the newest Nukem release. The original publisher of the "Duke Nukem" series was Apogee Software, but from 2010 to present, 2K Games has taken over.

"Duke Nukem Forever" will be a first-person shooter available for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Screenshots of the new game started to leak to the public in early 2007 after several delays, and in 2009, 3D Realms called it quits on the game. But in 2010, it was announced that plans for the game were back in action, and two months ago, yet another delay postponed the game's development. 

But now, 2K Games has announced that "Duke Nukem Forever" has gone gold. 

"Today marks an amazing day in the annals of gaming lore, the day where the legend of 'Duke Nukem Forever' is finally complete and it takes that final step towards becoming a reality," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K Games. 

"Duke Nukem Forever" will be released on June 10 in Europe, Japan and Australia, and June 14 in North America.
