Deus Ex: Mankind Divided releases next week and a lot of PC gamers are already looking forward to it. Square Enix, EIDOS Montreal and Nixxes claimed that the game would ship with DX12 support from the get-go, however it appears that this won’t be the case.
As the Deus Ex team noted, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided won’t support DX12 at launch. The team expects to release a patch that will add support to Microsoft’s latest API on the week of September 5th.
“Contrary to our previous announcement, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, which is shipping on August 23rd, will unfortunately not support DirectX 12 at launch. 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!”
