A nickname for videogame duke nukem forever, based on the fact that 3d realms are waiting for a real nukewar before launching it.
For over nine years, they've been making this game. Expected in 1997, then a few years later, now the end of the year.

Never. Did not originate as Cockney rhyming slang as is popularly supposed, instead St. John's Book of Revelations, Nostradamus' Centuries and Somethingawful.com mention the release date in reference to the End of Days.

Search Google for the "missed release dates" + "Duke Nukem Forever", and you'll get a rather funny list of serious statements from the developers. Now they just say, "There is no (release) date."

Duke Nukem Forever, the sequel to Duke Nukem 3D, quickly became one of the most hotly anticipated games of all time. But on May 6, 2009, everything ended.they gathered for a group photo. They were videogame programmers, artists, level builders, artificial-intelligence experts. Their team was—finally—giving up, declaring defeat, and disbanding. So they headed down to the lobby of their building in Garland, Texas, to smile for the camera. They arranged themselves on top of their logo: a 10-foot-wide nuclear-radiation sign, inlaid in the marble floor.To videogame fans, that logo is instantly recognizable. It's the insignia of Duke Nukem 3D, a computer game that revolutionized shoot-'em-up virtual violence in 1996. Featuring a swaggering, steroidal, wisecracking hero, Duke Nukem 3D became one of the top-selling videogames ever, making its creators very wealthy and leaving fans absolutely delirious for a sequel. The team quickly began work on that sequel, Duke Nukem Forever, and it became one of the most hotly anticipated games of all time.
