Eidos Montreal announced this week that the next entry of the popular Deus Ex series has been delayed six months. Originally set to be released on February 23rd, Eidos announced that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – a follow-up to 2011’s Human Revolution – is now scheduled for August 23rd.
David Anfossi announced in a blog titled “No Compromise on Quality” today that they were “confident and proud of the game so far” but they see areas that will require more work than expected.
“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.”
“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.”
Andossi said that their goal was for Mankind Divided to be a “worthy successor to Human Revolution and to improve upon that game in every way.” Human Revolution returned to the popular Deus Ex universe after eight years following Invisible War.
