If you’re one of those that had happily pre-ordered your copy of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided from the “Augment Your Pre-Order” setup? The bad news is headed right your way as Eidos has officially shut down the pre-order program and thus made the game globally available for everyone on February 23rd, 2016.
The official statement can be read below as fans will all be compensated for the changes in their pre-order status:
“We really understand and appreciate the passion for Deus Ex that the fans have shown here,” said David Anfossi, Studio Head at Eidos-Montréal. “Know that all of us, both at Square Enix and Eidos-Montreal, share that passion for this franchise.”
A vast majority of the negative feedback received arose from the tiers, and the requirement of specific pre-order numbers to unlock them. Therefore, taking into account the feedback from fans, the pre-order tiers have been removed, and all of the associated content with the program will now be made available for free to anyone who pre-orders or purchases a Day 1 edition of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Additionally, the release date will no longer be changed in accordance to pre-order numbers, and everyone will gain access to the game on February 23, 2016.
Square Enix and Eidos-Montréal sincerely thank the community for the love and dedication they have shown for the Deus Ex franchise.”
