This week at PAX Prime SQUARE ENIX confirmed the release windows for Final Fantasy XV and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. The highly-anticipated installment to the Final Fantasy series will now be released in 2016, as will the next game in the Deus Ex franchise.
“We’re proud of our technical capabilities and the work we’ve done to help shape the open-world genre,” said Sundberg while talking about the next FF game. “We hold the FINAL FANTASY franchise, and the team working on it, in such high regard and are excited to be a part of the next chapter.”
Eidos-Montréal joined Square Enix at PAX to announce that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the highly-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed Deus Ex: Human Revolution, will officially launch globally on February 23, 2016 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Square Enix also revealed “Augment Your Pre-Order” – the channel wide pre-order campaign for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, in which increasing tiers of pre-order bonuses will be unlocked as more copies of the game are reserved, worldwide in select countries.
