Deus Ex: Mankind Divided delayed until late next year

February gets (if possible) even worse

This morning Deus Ex: Mankind Divided popped briefly out of its hole, saw its shadow, and went straight back inside for six more months of development. The game will miss its slated February 23, 2016 date and will now launch on August 23, 2016—precisely five years to the day after Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s release.


From today’s news post by Eidos-Montreal studio head David Anfossi:

“As you may have already seen by reading and watching the many previews for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, our aim is for it to be a worthy successor to Human Revolution and to improve upon that game in every way possible.
“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 for tuning, iterations, and refinement to meet our high standards. In order to achieve this, we need to move the release of the game to August 23rd, 2016.”

Considering it took a decade to go from Invisible War to Human Revolution, I think we can all sit tight and wait until August. Especially if it makes the game better than Thief.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
