Apparently saying Square Enix didn’t do too hot this year is a bit of an understatement, as Gamasutra reports that the publisher has no choice but to delay Deus Ex: Human Revolution into the next fiscal year amidst financial woes, including a shocking slash of its net profit forecast for this year. How shocking? They’ve cut their forecast from 12 billion yen to a meager 1 billion yen, a whopping 90 percent decrease.
Deus Ex now joins Final Fantasy XIV as one of Square Enix’s key titles now resigned to their 2011 lineup. No solid release date has yet been announced, although I’m sure we’ll hear more about it during their press conference later today.
