‘Duke Nukem Forever’ lives

The long-talked about yet seldom-seen “Duke Nukem Forever” is real — and it’s scheduled to be released next year by 2K.

Gearbox Studios, who most recently scored a big hit with “Borderlands,” is putting the final touches on the game, which is being demoed at this week’s Penny Arcade Expo.

“Duke Nukem Forever” is being developed for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
