Duke Nukem pre-orders to be honoured

Gearbox working with retailers to sort it.

Good news for those who pre-ordered a copy of Duke Nukem Forever at some point in the last decade - you will indeed get your money's worth.

At least that's if Gearbox bossman Randy Pitchford has anything to do with it. Speaking to VG247 he said discussions with shopkeepers are already underway.

"There are a lot of people who pre-ordered the game. We've been starting to talk with retailers because we didn't take them directly, and 3D Realms didn't take them, it was all retailers going, 'I'm going to take this guy's money,'" Pitchford said.

But Gearbox won't stand for that sort of talk. "We've started to engage them, saying, 'Hey, you've got customers who you made a promise to, and any bad feeling they have will reflect on us, so can we work together to do something for those people?'

"I don't know what we can do yet, but something should be done for the people who pre-ordered."

Duke Nukem Forever is coming to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in February. Read our recent hands-on preview to find out how it's shaping up.
