Even though this is the season to be Jolly, Deus Ex fans may be experiencing a bit of misery as Square Enix have decided to push back Deus Ex: Human Revolution by a few months. The game was originally supposed to release in February or March but has now been postponed to Square’s next fiscal year that begins post April 2011.
Here’s the official statement, “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.”
Cut the marketing/PR jargon out and it looks Enix developed cold feet as both February and March are jam packed with AAA titles. Make sure you check out the latest video embedded below though, because it sheds some light on the protagonist and his origins.
