The release of Square Enix’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution has become indistinct as the publisher announced a delay until a vague later date. Originally scheduled for the first quarter of 2011, the game will now release sometime within the next fiscal year, which begins on April 1, 2011. The official reason for the delay is to give the Montreal-based dev-team some “further polish” time.

  1. As long as the game doesn’t have major game breaking glitches and such, and the story isn’t crap, then I am fine with the game being pushed back a bit, as it could give me some time to finish some other games in the game’s original release slot.

  2. Sucks. I hate polish these days. I’m always in favour of big messy concept over small, polished, short story. In video games at least.

    UNLESS they find a sort of perfect balance, like Batman: AA did. Good difficulty, lots of gameplay, great detail on what you’re gonna see lots, backtracking (yay :)), etc. But since Deus Ex has never been a game in which you stayed too long in one place or you were constantly revisiting old ones, it seems like the proper thing here would be to throw in 70 hours instead of 10 “polished” ones.
