Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Has Been Delayed 6 Months

As seems to be the case with every big AAA title, Eidos Montreal has announced that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has been delayed to August 2016. The game has been delayed 6 months, originally targeting a February 2016 release.

The news was announced via an update on Eidos Montreal’s website, where the typical excuses for every major video game delay were given. Scroll down to read the message they posted:

“As you may have already seen by reading and watching the many previews for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, our aim is for it to be a worthy successor to Human Revolution, and to improve upon that game in every way possible. I know that expectations are extremely high, and we not only want to meet those expectations, but exceed them.

 

We’re confident and proud of the game so far. However, as we are not playing through the game in full, we can see that it will require more time in post-production for tuning, iterations, and refinement to meet our high standards. In order to achieve this, we need to move the release of the game to August 23rd, 2016.

 

We are sorry to disappoint you with this news, and also thank you for all of your support and comments. This game is a huge part of our lives, and we don’t want to compromise on its quality.

 

So please be patient with us a little longer, and thanks as always for your passion and support – through thick and thin. It’s a huge responsibility to work on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – we know, but also a huge privilege. We’re determined to deliver the best game we can.”

It always amazes me how poorly some of these developers plan development time, as we’re 3 months away from the game’s release and they already know that they need another 9 months of development time.

Deus Ex returns with a game that will once again star Adam Jensen.

The Deus Ex series has been going strong for many years, with Deus Ex: Human Revolution releasing a few years ago to universal acclaim. Information had been very thin on what was going on for the series going forward, but now an info leak on a Russian gaming website has let the cat out of the bag.

The next game in the Deus Ex series is called Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and will be a sequel to Human Revolution. It will once again star Adam Jensen, though none of the four endings of Human Revolution will be canonical. This game has been teased during a lengthy Square Enix stream, while also being revealed as the cover story for the May issue of Game Informer.
