Eidos Montreal has just announced that its forthcoming cyberpunk themed action-RPG, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, has been delayed to August 23, 2016. In his blog update, Head of Studio David Anfossi cited post-production for tuning, iterations, and refinement as the reasons behind the delay. In order to meet the expectations of fans, the developer found it best to push Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s release further into next year.
Anfossi was sorry for the disappointment this news had brought to fans. He asked them to be patient and thanked them for all of their support during this time. He insisted that the studio doesn’t want to make any sort of compromise over the quality of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
The game was announced back in April this year. It is a direct sequel to 2011’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and is set two years after its events. Mankind Divided will feature the return of Adam Jensen, who is working with an international coalition to stop terrorist attacks with the help of new technology and body augmentations.
Deux Ex: Mankind Divided is now set to hit stores on August 23 next year for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Are you disappointed with the game’s delay? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
