Deus Ex: Human Revolution Delayed Among Other Bad News for Square Enix
12/16/2010 Written by Paulmichael Contreras



Deus Ex: Human Revolution
has been in development for at least three years now, and was slated for a Spring 2011 release date. But it looks like the title will have even more polish time thanks to some rather grim news by Eidos Montreal‘s parent company Square Enix.

In a recent statement, it was revealed that Human Revolution‘s release date has been moved from the upcoming quarter (January to March 2011) to the next fiscal year. This latest delay has Human Revolution joining the recently-delayed Final Fantasy XIV in a similar release timeframe. Square Enix’s motivation behind these delays is to not repeat poor reception of its key titles that the company saw this year. The company is re-thinking its priorities as evident in the statement:
We came to realise that our management priority is to improve the development of our digital-entertainment products.
Aside from this latest delay, it was also revealed that Square Enix is drastically cutting its projected net profit for their fiscal year (which ends on March 31st) from ¥12 billion (~$142.42 million USD) to just ¥1 billion (~$11.89 million USD). This represents a cut of over 91%, and cannot be a good sign for the company.

I really hope this doesnt stop it being released, the company sounds in a bad way, and its recent releases have been less than epic really. This is one title I am waiting for.

I have been waiting for this one since finishing the last one and really hope it doesn't get cancelled, but it does sound like they are in a bad way.

Hope it's a slight delay and nothing more but as we have seen this year, a lot of games that we have hoped for have been delayed or shelved entirely due to falling profits.
