Duke Nukem Forever to receive multiformat release

Yesterday the teaser trailer for Duke Nukem Forever was finally released, depicting pre-rendered footage, as opposed to actual gameplay. No sooner than this hit the Internet did speculation go off the rails as to whether or not the highly anticipated title would see the light of day on other formats besides the PC.

Now it appears that developer 3D Realms is seeking to release the title across other platforms, primarily the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. When asked the question, Scott Miller, the CEO of 3D Realms commented, "We plan to have a multi-platform release if possible. We’re not nailing down a date yet, but we’re excited about the game’s progress"

For those unaware Duke Nukem Forever has been in development for 10 years now. The series first kicked off in 1991 with the platform title Duke Nukem, later transitioning into the realms of 3D with the critically acclaimed 1996 FPS, Duke Nukem 3D.

Subsequent releases such as Duke Nukem: Zero Hour for the N64 and Duke Nukem: Time to Kill for the PlayStation were released to satisfy fans while Duke Nukem Forever continued its arduous development cycle, but failed to achieve the same success as their predecessor.
