Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was initially announced in April 2015, but there was no release window until two months later, at E3 2015 in June. The developers of the upcoming game showcased a cinematic trailer, with its estimated launch displayed at the end – 2016.
The original launch date of 23 February 2016 was pushed back in November 2015 when developer Square Enix said in a blog post that expectations were so high for Mankind Divided that it felt the game needed "more time in post-production for tuning, iterations, and refinement to meet our high standards". The new and final release date is 23 August 2016, exactly five years after Human Revolution.
