Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has been delayed from its original release date of February 23.

David Anfossi, the head of Eidos Montreal, has issued an official announcement that the studio’s new title will be delayed until next August. The posting also doubled as an apology, as they do understand that devoted fans have been waiting for this game since the previous entry, and are now being told they have to wait longer.

The delay was explained to be caused by recent look at the progress of the title by the developers. After which they party came to the conclusion that the game in its current state, did not meet the standards that the company had set out for itself when they started production on the title.

Closing out his plea for patience from the gaming community, Anfossi asked “Please be patient with us a little longer, and thanks as always for your passion and support – through thick and thin. 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.”

As excited as we are for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, we are also hoping that the mumble-mouth animation featured in the trailer will be fixed when the game is released on August 23, for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
