Deus Ex: Human Revolution Delayed
There are a ton of games coming out in early 2011 that look great, and one of the most anticipated is Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Unfortunately, it’s no longer going to be available early next year.
In a written statement, Square Enix explains the move, saying,
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.
This announcement accompanied the news that Square Enix was drastically cutting their profit forecasts, from 12 million yen all the way down to 1 million yen. I guess with the , they wanted to cut their losses this year and polish up Human Revolution as much as they can.
