Deus Ex: The Fall Android Release is Close, Square Thinking About Console & PC Ports
Last month, we’ve reported how Deus Ex: The Fall is going to be hitting Android smartphones and tablets this September, and while its launch may not have happened right at the beginning of the month as many have hoped, Square Enix’s James Wright said everything’s going as planned and it looks like the first portable Deus Ex game will make its Android release window.
Wright also revealed that Deus Ex: The Fall “has always been planned for Android,” and given how “there is a lot of interest in playing Deus Ex: The Fall on other platforms,” Square Enix and N-Fusion are “considering many options.” Though hinting at console and PC ports of the critically acclaimed game, Wright quickly added that the development team is still completely focused on smartphone and tablet version of the said mobile title.
