Those looking forward to the release of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
will have to wait a bit longer as Eidos Montreal has announced that the title will be delayed for a total of six months, moving its release date away from February 23rd to August 2016.
In a blog post, Eidos-Montreal's Head of Studio David Anfossi explained that the delay will allow the team to put more time into post-production and refinement in order to meet their high standards.
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.
He continued to say:
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.Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
will now launch on August 23rd, 2016. On the plus side, at least we'll have something to look forward to in those quiet summer months.
Thanks to all of the community members that sent this news in to us.
