Deus Ex: Mankind Divided delayed until August 2016
Eidos Montreal has announced that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, originally scheduled for release in Febrary 2016, has been delayed until August 2016.
Just as we were starting to get excited about the upcoming release of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Eidos Montreal revealed that the game is to be delayed for six months.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was originally scheduled to be released in February 2016, but is now delayed until August 23rd, 2016. Eidos Montreal maintains that this is to ensure that there is no compromise on quality.
In a blog post, studio head CEO David Anfossi said that the development team knows that there is an air of expectation about the game. He wrote, “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.”
While he said that they are proud of the game so far, he conceded that it “will require more time in post-production for tuning, iterations, and refinement.”
Anfossi closed by thanking fans. “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," he wrote.
Assuming there are no more delays, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will be released on August 23rd, 2016 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
