    Tags: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided; Eidos Montreal

    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was originally supposed to come out on February 23rd next year (or maybe four days earlier, but that bit of stupidity was thankfully cancelled). However, despite the fact that it received a host of positive previews last month, it turns out that the game needs more time than that. A lot more time. Mankind Divided's release date is now August 23rd, 2016. Here's an apologetic delay announcement from Eidos Montreal boss David Anfossi:

    No compromise on quality - New release date for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

    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 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. ​

    A six month delay after they'd already declared an exact release date is a bit out of the blue. Still, it's nothing Witcher 3 didn't do (twice) and that turned out all right. Maybe Deus Ex will be able to go head-to-head against Dishonored 2 after all.

    Wishful thinking interpretation: someone at Square Enix actually got cold feet about the quality of their own product after F4 disaster record breaking launch.

    "So! All the major content is in, every feature is implemented, it's 3 months of polish from now on! Time for the first full playthrough, guys!"

    -2 days later-

    "So...how was it?"
    "Yeeeaaah, we're gonna need at least 6 more months."

    Hm, this could be somewhat related to Paris terror attacks. The announcement trailer mentions terrorism as a plot device. Can they remake a plot in such a short period?

    Perhaps they asked themselves, "How the fuck do we ensure even the smallest amount of verisimilitude when our narrative takes for granted that every other lower class pleb inexplicably has access to cyberaugments, including entire arm and leg replacements?"

    Yeah, nah...

    My guess is they have to tie in to the NSF somehow

    That's an interesting point.
    It's reasonable to delay the game to avoid rubbing salt into the wound, but has any game have gone so far as to redo a major part of the story?

    The reason why it was delayed is because the plot was bullshit and the game sucked. I know this from inside. Each month they postpone such a game cost them 1million, they don't make that decision (6 months) easily.

    Give this man a developer tag, he's clearly disgruntled with his current job and needs little encouragement to post more info on the game and some dick pics.
