Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Delayed to August 2016

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has been slapped with a six month delay. The game will no longer launch on February 23, 2016, but on August 23, 2016 instead.

Eidos Montreal boss David Anfossi explained that the delay would allow the team to make numerous post-production improvements. This will, in turn, lead to a higher quality product.

“We’re confident and proud of the game so far,” Anfossi wrote on the game’s site. “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.

“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.”

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is out August 23 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game takes place in 2029, two years following the events of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. You play as Adam Jensen who, once again, gets tangled in another conpircacy involving terrorist groups and the people who run the organization he works for.
