“…our aim is for [Deus Ex: Mankind Divided] to be a worthy successor to Human Revolution, and to improve upon that game in every way possible,” David Anfossi, head of Eidos-Montreal, wrote in the update on the site. “…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.”
Anfossi also apologized for the delay and thanked fans for their continued support of the franchise.
Mankind Divided joins Mirror’s Edge Catalyst in being pushed from the release date. Originally scheduled for a Feb. 23, 2016 release, the Mirror’s Edge reboot is now slotted for May 24, 2016.
We got a chance to see Deus Ex: Mankind Divided when it was first announced at E3 2015 and we were impressed. It’s disappointing that the game is being pushed back so long, but we can only hope this will be good for the game in the long run. What was shaping up to be a busy February is suddenly looking a lot less crowded.
