To be blunt, the reveal of Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut seemed a bit off when it was due near the Wii U's launch, as it was one of the oldest ports being mooted for the system — even if it fixes troublesome sequences and GamePad features are part of the deal. Publisher Square Enix then went quiet on a release date, before confirming that it'd also come to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
It's now been confirmed that the title will arrive on all platforms on 22nd October in North America and 25th October in Europe. It'll use the second-screen of the GamePad, naturally, while the 360 and PS3 versions will apparently utilise SmartGlass and the PS Vita, respectively. While an improved version of what was a thoroughly decent game is welcome, we can't help but wonder whether it'll be buried by the wave of new releases over the coming months.
That announcement followed confirmation of a planned Deus Ex: Universe range of products, with the name incorporating new games, apps and even graphic novels. PC and console versions will be included for the next game in the franchise, though considering the sketchy release course of the Director's Cut on the Wii U, we'd advise caution in expecting the next game to come to Nintendo's system; naturally we hope it will.
