We asked for this, and we’re getting it, just a bit later than we expected to.
Looks like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will not support DirectX 12, Microsoft’s newest graphical API, currently exclusive to Windows 10, at launch. Eidos Montreal today confirmed that DirectX 12 support is expected to be delayed by nearly two weeks, and that it is expected to launch instead on September 5.
“Contrary to our previous announcement, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, which is shipping on August 23rd, will unfortunately not support DirectX 12 at launch,” they said in a statement. “We have some extra work and optimizations to do for DX12, and we need more time to ensure we deliver a compelling experience. Our teams are working hard to complete the final push required here though, and we expect to release DX12 support on the week of September 5th!”
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is the latest entry in the long running Deus Ex series, and it is due out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on August 23.
