2K’s confirmed, in probably the most amazing way possible, that Duke Nukem Forever has been delayed into June.

In a video it’s just sent out, featuring Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford, the dates of May 3 in the US and May 6 elsewhere are replaced by a June 10 worldwide date and June 14 in the US.

“I’m very sorry for the added delay. We’ve all been working extremely hard and are very eager to deliver the game to you,” he added in a press release just sent through by Take Two.

“I’ve been thinking of these lyrics from the great country song, ‘He’s The Duke’ – ‘He told us if we waited we could Come Get Some, but I never knew Forever was going to be so long.’ If you’re like me, June cannot come quickly enough.”

2K president Christoph Hartmann added: “We’re committed to deliver a laugh-out-loud, politically incorrect experience that people will talk about for years to come. We thank Duke’s fans for their continued patience – I promise this won’t take another 15 years.”

Watch the video below. Go, Randy, go. Or under the circumstance, not.
