    Best comment from that Reddit thread (note that this was posted nine months ago):

    Duke Nukem Forever will come out before Episode 3. A few months ago, I would have been called a crackpot for saying such a thing.

    And lo, it came to pass that Duke Nukem Forever managed to beat another long-awaited game to market. I think that’s one of the signs of the End Times.

    Wasn’t long at all before we had to find a new joke for production times, eh? What was that, 2 months since the running gag tooted its last horn?

    Oh well, time to continue the trend:

    “I hear episode three will come out as a historical game.”
