Pitchford: Duke Nukem Forever demo an “important thing to do”

Gearbox Software head Randy Pitchford has said that a demo is an “important thing to do” for Duke Nukem Forever, although he unfortunately couldn’t provide a time frame as to when we’d see it arrive.

“I think that is an important thing to do,” Pitchford told VG247, “and while I don’t have a date for that…

“Now that the cat’s out of the bag we can actually make those plans. No we can get with retailers and figure out the launch window, and figure out demo timing, and work with the first-parties on that. We weren’t able to do that until this point, because if we did we risked damaging it even further.”

Looks like we won’t hear any concrete dates for a demo until after a launch window’s actually figured out. If anything, though, I hope we get the demo they showed off at PAX. I want to take down a cycloid on a football field!
