Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction was supposed to be released in February 2014, however the project ran into some legal trouble and had to have a name and character change. This Duke Nukem follow up is now called Bombshell, and sadly the news continues to be bad. Bombshell has now been delayed to 2016.
Bombshell was supposed to be launched for PC in November of 2015 but according to studio Interceptor Entertainment, during testing the game just had way too many bugs to get them all fixed by the deadline. So the news isn’t good, but it is good that they are committed to quality even if they have to delay this title.
“Our first instinct was to just get this puppy out the door, and that we could fix the remaining issues with a quick patch after launch. But within ten seconds we realized that’s no way to treat paying fans of our games,” said Frederik Schreiber of Interceptor Entertainment. That is exactly the right attitude.
The studio now hopes to release the title on January 29th, of 2016. Bombshell will later arrive on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One once it has been released for PC. We don’t have dates for those just yet though.
