Deus Ex: Mankind Divided delayed until late next year

February gets (if possible) even worse

This morning Deus Ex: Mankind Divided popped briefly out of its hole, saw its shadow, and went straight back inside for six more months of development. The game will miss its slated February 23, 2016 date and will now launch on August 23, 2016—precisely five years to the day after Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s release.

Weird.

From today’s news post by Eidos-Montreal studio head David Anfossi:

“As you may have already seen by reading and watching the many previews for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, our aim is for it to be a worthy successor to Human Revolution and to improve upon that game in every way possible.
“We’re confident and proud of the game so far. However, as we are now playing through the game in full we can see that it will require more time in post-production for tuning, iterations, and refinement to meet our high standards. In order to achieve this, we need to move the release of the game to August 23rd, 2016.”

Considering it took a decade to go from Invisible War to Human Revolution, I think we can all sit tight and wait until August. Especially if it makes the game better than Thief.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
