Duke Nukem Forever is coming, for real, some serious business is going down on May 3. It's taken over a decade for it to become reality and with that in mind, will the Duke be enjoy any post-launch content?

According to Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford, the dev has nothing to announce about DLC at this point. The team has been so focused on simply getting the core game out to retail - after all, it's been ages in the making.

"We haven't announced anything yet," said Pitchford, "I say this with as much sincerity as I can muster - we're focused entirely on making possible the unpossible: shipping Duke Nukem Forever."

However, DLC was not discounted, Pitchford added that "As we wrap everything up completely and get closer to the launch date, our attentions can be allowed to think about the future again. Myself and other people from the Gearbox team will then talk about it with fans in the forums at www.gearboxity.com."

Pitchford went on to assure fans that the censorship seen in the recently released trailer will not be included in the final game, boasting that it won't hold anything back.

"When considering more open marketing materials that are available to see on the internet there's a feeling among those who are supposed to be responsible for having such feelings that a little more restraint is prudent," he said.

"However, the things that are blurred and bleeped in the trailer are not blurred and bleeped in the game."

Here's the trailer, shame on you if you haven't already seen it. Game's on May 3 on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
