Square Enix has announced a six month delay for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
Originally slated for release on February 23, the game will now arrive on August 23.
According to Eidos Montreal boss David Anfossi the delay will allow the team to make “post-production” improvements in order to “deliver the best game” it can.
“We’re confident and proud of the game so far,” he wrote in a blog post. “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.
“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 takes place in 2029, two years after the events of Human Revolution and was officially announced in April of this year.
It is in development for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
