Deus Ex: Mankind Divided delayed to August 2016

Deus Ex: Mankind needs just a little more time before it's set out into the world.

Square Enix has announced Deus Ex: Mankind has been delayed to August 23, 2016.

Eidos-Montreal head of studio David Anfossi announced Deus Ex: Mankind’s delay on its official website. He notes the studio is aiming for the latest game in the iconic series to be a worthy successor of Human Revolution, which it aims to not only meet those expectations, but to exceed them.

“We’re confident and proud of the game so far,” Anfossi writes. “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 August 23rd, 2016.”

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was originally announced for a February 23, 2016 release, which now takes the game into the often-quiet summer release lineup.

      BOO, but hey, make the game good. Take your time! We only had a few really screwed up games last year which was a huge step up from last year so.

        Yeah, not happy, but I'd much rather they take their time.

        On the plus side, the next generation of nvidia cards should be out by this point, right?

          Seems that way, though they'll sell the expensive ones first as usual.

      Sucks but it's OK as long as they take the time to do it right

      It's a big delay for just QA. I wonder if this ties into the preorder fiasco; putting the "DLC" into the game properly perhaps.

      It's good that they take the time. If people remember their first Deus Ex game, they took some community / fan advice and criticism to heart and added features and polish that wouldn't have been in the game otherwise. Sucks to wait longer but it will be a stronger game as a result.

      I'm in favour of this because my backlog is about a thousand miles long right now.

      Honestly the previews didn't look all that great to me, so I'm glad they're taking some extra time. Make the best possible game. We don't want another Thief.
