Deus Ex: Mankind Divided delayed to August 2016

2 min read


Eidos and Square-Enix’s dystopian cyberpunk RPG follow-up to the excellent Human Revolution won’t be out in February next year as originally intended. The game’s been delayed to August, says the developer in a note on its site. The game’s been delayed to make sure it’s a worthy successor to the last one.

Says Eidos:

“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 now 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 23 August 2016.”

Eidos wants to make sure the game you play is the best it can be.

“Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a huge project,” the developer said on Twitter. “We won’t compromise on quality.”

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, running on developer Eidos Montreal’s own Dawn Engine. The game takes place in 2029, and continues the story of Adam Jensen, who’s a little more in tune with his augmentations.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    By another 6 months? Are they making an augmented baby?

    • Hammersteyn

      Or a new augmented season pass?

  • aj_nator

    With so many games coming out early next year,my wallet asked for this..delay

    • Marcus

      The antici……….pation will get the better of you

  • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

    I’m….ok with this, it will take me roughly 6 months to get my fill of XCOM 2

    • WitWolfy

      Agreed.. I still have a massive Xbox One, PS4 and PS3 library to tackle!

  • Captain JJ the Goo

    This is perfectly fine. Same thing happened with Witcher 3 and it was worth waiting for in the end. Rather this than another Batman Arkham Knight

    • Hammersteyn

      Why? What happened with………. oh right… PC

  • WitWolfy

    Ouch.. Some people are gonna be pissed.

    • Hammersteyn

      It’s gonna outshine the PSFAWR by one million peas

      • WitWolfy

        RIIIIIIIDGE RACER standards?

        • Hammersteyn

          hahaha yes

  • Hammersteyn

    “The game takes place in 2029” at this pace it will launch round about that time

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    I’m fine with that, my backlog needs taking care of, and if Deus Ex released in February, I would have fallen victim to the usual gaming hamster wheel.

  • Johann

    It seems that a lot of games scheduled for a February release are either game that already got delayed or games that will be delayed by another couple of months.
    Doesn’t matter, I still have Fallout 4 to finish up and a bunch of other games in the back log.

  • Martin Human

    As we are mow playing the game in full… maybe the bossfight thing happened again and they realized it?

  • Viking Of Science

    Thank God, February/March was going to Destroy my Wallet, now, a little less so…

  • Deceased

    Goes to the corner and cries :'(
