Excitement has been building to the newest entry into the Deus Ex series, Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Sadly expectant fans will now have to wait longer to get their hands on the game thanks to its latest delay, moving the game into
Developed by Eidos Montreal, Deus Ex: Human Revolution is the latest edition in the cult series. Originally scheduled for release at the end of March 2011, the games publisher Square-Enix has decided to delay the games release. The company released a statement to explain its decision.
“With weak sales performance of console game titles that have been newly released during the current fiscal year as well as harsh market feedback regarding a key title, the Group recognizes the reinforcement of development capability in our Digital Entertainment segment as our most critical managerial issue.
We therefore have decided to spend additional time to further polish our upcoming game, DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION, resulting in a shift in release timing from our prior plan of the current fiscal year to next fiscal year.”
Harsh market feedback? It could be speculated that the recent issues over with Square’s newest MMO Final Fantasy XIV have forced the company to re-evaluate the quality of its output. This of course is not a bad thing considering many who bought that game haven’t exactly been singing its praises. That said it’s always disappointing when a game like Deus Ex falls victim to pushes in the release schedules and with no firm date set, it would appear that the wait could be lengthy for this highly anticipated game. Will the extra time lead to a greater experience?
Game Rant got to experience Deus Ex: Human Revolution at the 2010 E3 event. Our initial reaction was highly positive and the scope for the story appears to fall in line with what Deus Ex fans would expect. Set in 2027, Human Revolution sees gamers takes control of Adam Jensen, a security specialist who seeks revenge on terrorists that attacked the biotics company he was protecting. Anyone who has played either of the previous Deus Ex games will know all is not as it seems and with multiple story lines promised, it appears you will once again have to choose your allies and enemies carefully.
Are the Ranters disappointed by this delay? Are you looking forward to Deus Ex: Human Revolution as much as we are?
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is expected to be released in 2011 on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC platforms.
