Eidos confirmed Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will not support DirectX 12 at launch. The game launches on August 23rd but the DirectX 12 mode still needs extra polishing. The game developer promises to release a DirectX 12 patch in the week of September 5th.
The Deus Ex franchise originated on PC, and we’re passionate about continuing to provide the best experience possible to our long-time fans and players on the PC.
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!
We thank you for your patience, passion, and support.
