It took 6,000 man-months to make Duke Nukem Forever

For a game that’s been in development for what seems like – well, forever, Gearbox, the final developers for Duke Nukem Forever estimate that it the game probably took about 6,000 man-months to finish.

Gearbox’s boss Randy Pitchford says that the orignal developers, 3D Realms poured in about 3,500-4,500 man-months while his company put in about 2,500 or so man-months to complete development.

With that type of crazy work, gamers will be expecting this game to live up to its hype. I was fortunate enough to get hands-on play time with Duke Nukem Forever at PAX East last month and I have to say, the game looks pretty great.

It’s no Call of Duty, but it’ll definitely be a fun game riddled with cheesy humor and if you’re into that sort of thing, some light hanky panky scenes.

Look for Duke Nukem Forever to be released in June on PS3 and Xbox 360.
