Deus Ex: Mankind Divided release delayed to August 2016

Uh-oh. There's some bad news for those (like me) that were eager for another adventure in the skin and augmentations of Adam Jensen. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the upcoming title in the Deus Ex series, will be delayed for six months. The game's release is now set for August 23, 2016.

David Anfossi, head of Eidos-Montreal, says the studio wants to take advantage of the extra time for "[post-production] tuning, iterations, and refinements to meet [its] high standards" after the development team played through the game in its current state and apparently found its quality lacking.

Expectations for Mankind Divided are high. After all, its predecessor Deus Ex: Human Revolution was met with near-universal praise. Yours truly played through Human Revolution (and its expansion) twice, and I can attest to its quality. Mankind Divided is also shaping up to be one of the showcase titles for DirectX 12—its stunning graphics engine appears to have great promise.
