'Deus Ex: Human Revolution' (ALL) Gets Delayed

In Deus Ex: Human Revolution you play Adam Jensen, a security specialist, handpicked to oversee the defense of one of America's most experimental biotechnology firms. But when a black ops team breaks in and kills the scientists you were hired to protect, everything you thought you knew about your job changes.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution  is the return to one of the most critically-acclaimed video game franchises of all time. The game tells the story of Adam Jensen, a man cybernetically augmented against his own choice who finds himself in the middle of a global conspiracy to which he holds the key. By offering players the chance to advance through the game in multiple and vastly different ways, Deus Ex: Human Revolution challenges the foundations of gaming and provides an immersive experience where every choice has a lasting consequence.

Originally scheduled for Q1 2011, meaning prior to March 2011, Square Enix has delayed Eidos Montreal's latest installment in the Deus Ex series until Q2 2011.

Square Enix issued the following 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.

Key features:

  • The long-awaited return of the award winning franchise that blends the best of Action and RPG: the perfect mix of combat, stealth, hacking, and social gameplay.
  • Play as Adam Jensen, a mechanically augmented agent: customize and upgrade your character with more than 50 unique augmentations that support your style of play.
  • Deadly weapons: Over 20 available weapons, each with their own customizable elements.
  • Fight enemies including dangerous thugs, augmented special operations soldiers, advanced robots; and engage in epic boss battles.
  • Live the reactive and dangerous world: your choices will have consequences in the game’s world.
  • Play in an open-ended world: there are always multiple solutions to every challenge.
  • Engage the unique Cyber Renaissance setting: discover a unique world that blends near future and Renaissance elements.
  • Travel the world: visit multiple unique locations across the globe each with their own design, story and gameplay elements.
  • Become involved in vast global conspiracy: unravel the story — discover who you can really trust.
  • Decide humanity’s future: the decision you make and the actions you take will lead to an ultimate decision on mankind’s future.
