“We’re confident and proud of the game so far. However, as we are now playing through the game in full we can see that it will require more time in post-production tuning, iterations, and refinement to meet our high standards,” said Anfossi.
“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.”
Hey, if it’s not ready – it’s not ready. No reason rushing a game into a crowded release window. Plus, publishers are finally starting to realize the success of summer releases. Watch Dogs sold like gangbusters. Why? Because nothing else released around it. August 23 is a solid release date, for right now. Will other early 2016 games slip to summer? We shall see.

And if you haven’t been following Mankind Divided at all, here’s the E3 gameplay demo.
