Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is delayed to August 23, 2016, Eidos Montreal just announced. It was originally planned for February. Insert all jokes about asking for things here.
Square Enix has given a launch date of February 23 for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided in a recent press release.
Not that Deus Ex: Human Revolution didn't already look great. It did. But the game's unique environment, and the room we start in, Megan Reed's office, recreated in CryEngine 3 by fan artist Jovcem, just look super.
Remember the outcry over Deus Ex: The Fall, the mobile side story to Square Enix's hit Deus Ex: Human Revolution? The game just hit Steam, so everyone can be happy now. Yay!
One would think a series with its roots firmly planted in the seminal transhumanist science fiction of the 20th century would be a bit more respectful of the whole book-reading thing. Alas.
UPDATE (4:15pm): Thief developer Eidos Montreal laid off 27 employees today. Here's the full statement from their parent company, Square Enix:
Here's a start-to-finish look at the first mission in Thief, 10 days away from its Feb. 25 launch. Garrett's trying to make his way back to his hideout during "Lockdown," when, well, opportunities arise, as they usually do.
Eeehhh, we're a bit uneasy about the new Thief game. But hey, we won't know until we get our hands on the finished product. Until then, here's a story trailer, which given its airing during the VGX should have been just cinematic fluff. So it's nice they also stuck some gameplay in there.
Eidos Montreal, the studio behind Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Thief, has just cancelled a third game they had planned, multiple sources have informed Kotaku.
Deus Ex is going next-gen, and although the next game in Eidos's popular sci-fi series won't be here for a while, at least we've got some concept art.
Release Date Announcement: We just got word from Square Enix that Thief will release on February 25 of next year. You can watch the new Gamescom trailer released in tandem with the news right here.
Ex-Eidos Montreal boss Stephane D'Astous, who left the studio last Friday, has come out firing shots at his former parent company.
"We didn't ask for this!" came the cry of PC and console fans, angry with the revelation that the next Deus Ex game would be an episodic mobile adventure. They don't want to play it on their phones or tablets. It's a pity, really, because The Fall is nearly every bit the Deus Ex game Human Revolution is.
Deus Ex: The Fall, the first mobile installment of Eidos-Montréal's cyberpunk-themed action RPG series, will be available on iOS devices this Thursday for $6.99.
Already slated for release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, Eidos Montreal's Thief is now confirmed to be launching simultaneously on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as well. What, no Wii U?
It might not be on the platform you wanted it to be on, but you have to admit Deus Ex: The Fall looks pretty sweet.
