Jean-François Dugas, game director for Deus Ex: Human Revolution, has mentioned in a twitter post that the much-speculated-upon release date will be revealed next week.
This is a bit of a shameless announcement-of-a-forthcoming-announcement, but people have been eager for any hint of a release date ever since publisher Square Enix into a new financial year.
In reply to a request for “something interesting” about Human Revolution, Dugas replied “Of course ! The release date will be announced next week!” When asked if he was serious, he replied again: “I can’t be more serious!”
With any luck, it won’t be too far into 2011.
