Deus Ex Delayed Thanks to Square Enix's Terrible Yearly Forecast

December 16, 2010

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.

Allen is an utter whore of a gamer; he's completely open-minded to all games, be they AAA blockbusters or $5 casual children's games. His focus is on indie games specifically, valuing gameplay and ingenuity over sparkly visuals and ridiculous gimmicks. When he's not geeking out over the newest art game, he's out toning his sexy, sculpted shoulders while surfing epic 1.5ft waves, or having a good time with local, high-gravity microbrews.
