It’s official: Duke Nukem Forever will be released on May 3, 2011. I know we’ve been promised this several times over the last 12 years, but president of Gearbox Software and executive producer of Duke Nukem Forever Randy Pitchford says this time it’s for real to Game Informer.

“Somehow the guys at Game Informer magazine discovered Duke Nukem Forever’s launch date before I did,” he said. “But I cannot imagine any better video game news source team than Game Informer to reveal the moment of truth for the most inconceivable, incorrigible and inspiring turn around story in the history of the video game industry – the coming of Duke Nukem Forever on May 3, 2011.”

Gearbox also released the SFW version of the trailer revealed at PAX, and it looks mighty exciting with exploding aliens and tons of biddies. Techland got to play the game late last year and well, you can read it for yourself, it seems like it’s going to be worth the wait.

So who’s ready to turn in those decade-old pre-order vouchers?
