Duke Nukem Forever in 2008!

Today, the Dallas Business Journal has confirmed that the long awaited sequel to Duke Nukem is hitting consoles in 2008.

There are still so many things we don’t know about the game, but I have a feeling we will hear some very soon. Take this for example, I’m not quite sure even the developers know which console the game will be released on:

“We haven’t formally announced any platforms for DNF,” wrote 3D Realms President Scott Miller in an e-mail exchange. “But, of course hitting the big three makes the most sense (PC, PS3, 360).”

He also added that they may miss their scheduled release date by a month or two (even though we don’t know what it is), but he feels confident they will hit they target this time.

Miller also confirmed the existence of a downloadable Xbox Live Arcade version of Duke Nukem 3D. It will feature on-line multiplayer support, Xbox Live achievements, on-line score boards, and a co-op mode.

“We’re really excited about bringing classic Duke to the 360,” said Miller during an interview with the Dallas Business Journal. “We’re talking to Microsoft about getting a release slot sometime this year.”

EDIT 3:24 p.m.: We also wanted to show you a little something from IGN.com. We wanted to point this out before it changed. Take a look at the release date for US on the Duke Nukem Forever page on IGN. Or you can just look at the screenshot we made of it (click to view larger):

I guess they just got tired of changing it.
