Deus Ex Human Revolution release date

UPDATE: GAME confirms UK date.

UPDATE: GAME has told Eurogamer it now has a confirmed UK release date for Deus Ex: Human Revolution: 26th August, as expected. It has updated its website. Eurogamer understands this is the date Square Enix will announce later this week.

ORIGINAL STORY: A shop has jumped the gun and announced the release date for Square Enix's hotly anticipated science fiction role-playing game Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

It's due out in Australia on 25th August this year, according to EB Games.

It'll no doubt launch a day later, on Friday 26th August, in the UK. Eurogamer has asked Square Enix for comment.

In December last year Square Enix delayed the launch of Deus Ex into its next fiscal year, which begins in April 2011. The Eidos Montreal-developed title was due out early 2011.

"With weak sales performance of console game titles that have been newly released during the current fiscal year as well as harsh market feedback regarding a key title, the Group recognizes the reinforcement of development capability in our Digital Entertainment segment as our most critical managerial issue," Square Enix said in a note to investors.

"We therefore have decided to spend additional time to further polish our upcoming game, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, resulting in a shift in release timing from our prior plan of the current fiscal year to next fiscal year."

Alec Meer went hands-on with Deus Ex for Eurogamer last month.
