Why because he actually wants to release a game that he can be proud of and know for a fact that is complete? Or do you want another game thats just rushed out the door like majority of the titles on the market.

I personally would love if most developers did not set release dates and just released titles when they thought it feels complete.

I'd prefer a game that's actually released, personally.

Yet then you (not specifically you but people in general on the forums) go and bitch that the title is buggy or lacking in the features the originally promised but had to remove to release it on the promised release date.

Games are getting more advance, unless you want mindless shooters (D3 Anyone) then developers need more time. Not ever developer is like EA who will release a game in less then a year time with minor changes.

Take the Virtua Fighter Series, they could pump out tons of these with just the same graphics engine and new characters but they actually change gameplay aspects and increase the graphics plus add new features not in the orignal title.

9 years ;)

As for its development time, eh as long as its a LONG fun game then It could take another 5 for all I care. It just better not look dated and only take 15 hours to beat. I mean the game is almost 10GB large... it better be freaking amazing.

Ya, totally agree. Look at the STALKER for example. What a mess of PR and release dates.

Yeah, but over those years, how many times did they plaster crap in your face about DNF? Look at STALKER, I think they alone pushed their product in peoples faces like a million times and then turned around with delays. I'm appreciative they didn't slam DNF in my face all the time over the course of those years. As a matter of fact, they kept their mouth shut 99% of the time.

Im tired of chit-chat and blahblah about DNF but no screens, no videos, only blahblahblah, hope that if this game is released some time it wont be "the next daikatana" but 9 years is so much, I pray to see this game before having a child :D

The funny thing is, when they do announce a release date, it will probably be at least a year or 3 quarters away. Then there is the chance it will be delayed once they do announce that date.

I don't think they will one day say.... DNF has gone gold get ready to buy it next week. The marcom and PR guys need at least 3/4ths of a year to hype it.

Then again they had the past 9 years LOL.

They are using a heavily modified Unreal 2 engine. They claim to have re-written 90% of the Unreal 2 engine. So, basically it's now a DNF engine based off Unreal 2 engine.

[ Wikipedia Duke Nukem Forever (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duke_nukem_forever) ]

Wikipedia has a good write-up on everything Duke Nukem Forever.
It's a good read if you haven't been following the development of DNF.
