Duke Nukem Forever is an upcoming first-person shooter video game for the Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 systems,[7] currently in development by Gearbox Software, and a sequel to the 1996 game Duke Nukem 3D, as part of the long-running Duke Nukem video game series. Intended to be groundbreaking, it has become notorious in the video games industry for its severely-protracted development schedule; the game has been in development since 1997. Originally in development under 3D Realms, director George Broussard, one of the creators of the original Duke Nukem game, first announced the title's development in April 1997, and promotional information for the game was released in one form or another from 1997 to 2008. This information, including screenshots, showed different looks for the game, as 3D Realms was constantly changing game engines and graphics.

After repeatedly announcing and deferring release dates, 3D Realms announced in 2001 that it would be released simply "when it's done". In May 2009, 3D Realms was downsized for financial reasons, resulting in the loss of the game's development team. Statements by the company indicated that the project was due to go gold soon with pictures of final development. Take-Two Interactive, which owns the publishing rights to the game, filed a lawsuit in 2009 against 3D Realms over their failure to finish development. 3D Realms retorted that Take-Two's legal interest in the game is limited to their publishing right. The case was settled with prejudice and details undisclosed in May 2010. On 3 September 2010, after 13 years, Duke Nukem Forever was officially reported by 2K Games to be in development at Gearbox Software,[8] with an expected release date of 2011.[9]
