Duke Forever out 'when pigs fly'

Joshes 3D Realms boss.

More than eight years after work first started on Duke Nukem Forever, 3D Realms bigwig George Broussard has hinted at the game's release date, suggesting it'll finally hit the shelves "when pigs fly."

At least, that's what he jokingly said in an interview with 1up before getting a bit more serious and stating: "It's definitely going well now.

"Things are together; we're in full production. We're basically just pulling all the pieces together and making the game out of it. There's a lot that's finished."

And that includes the guns and the creatures, Broussard went on. "We've kind of got all these disassociated elements that make up a game, and you put them together and things happen.

"And then you just tweak it and polish it until it's fun, and that's kind of the phase we're in now, just trying to make something that is really fun to play and interesting."

About time too. Duke Nukem is out... Eventually.
