Hello all!

Production on Revision 1.0 is finished. Some of you are wondering why we aren’t shipping yet. We’re addressing that today.

A while back we started incorporating tech into Revision that was a step beyond what anyone had ever done with this game. We implemented engine-level bug fixes and tweaks for the game’s rendering system, such as allowing decals (e.g. bullet holes) to appear in mirrors, ensuring footstep sounds occurred correctly, and increasing the limits for BSP geometry to ensure that our environments could be more detailed and more stable. We started using portions of what has been named the Revision Framework (so named because we led to its creation, not because it is exclusive to the inner workings of our project), a piece of tech that makes it relatively easy to expand on the game’s content and systems. We are quietly working on RF, intending for it to be released to the DX modding community.

Concerning the game's content, we have tied in continuity threads to the official entries in the franchise in the form of emails, logos, and other references. We also discovered some potential copyright problems in both our in-game and promotional graphics; we’ve been very busy reworking things to make sure those don’t become troublesome later on.

All of this lead us to feel extremely cautious- we want to ensure that when we release, there are no potential land mines waiting for us. So we approached Square Enix with the intent of making sure that everything we had planned was going to be fine. They’ve been very helpful and supportive; the processes has gone on longer than anyone anticipated, and we're taking advantage of the time to implement little fixes and bits of polish that were otherwise slated for the 1.1 update. On the one hand, we would love to get Revision out the door ASAP. On the other, we’re committed to making sure that we can release it and maintain it in the best possible way, and with as few stumbles as possible.

Thank you for your continuing support and patience. We almost have everything in place. And the satellites are ours when we need them.

[July 9 Update]

A few of you have been expressing concerns that Revision is related to Mankind Divided or will be a paid-for release. Neither of these things is the case- we have no involvement in the promotion of Mankind Divided, and have never considered making Revision a commercial product. We are not providing precise release dates for a pretty straightforward reason: We're holding some confidential talks with Square Enix to make sure everything is okay, and to make something cool happen, something that we aren't talking about yet, because it's not finalized yet. We've been having a series of back-and-forths to make sure that everybody on our team is happy. There are no real problems, just technicalities that have needed to be ironed out. At this point (July 9), we're expecting these things to be wrapped up shortly.

Everything is pretty much OK, and we're in a position where we have to talk to some people to make some things happen, and the timeline for making those things happen should be pretty fast, but is partially out of our control. All we ask of you is to please be patient.

This comment section is pitiful at this point. The attitude so many people have regarding what is only a mod is so childish that they don't even deserve to play it. Deus Ex is an M rated game, after all, and all I'm seeing here is a bunch of freakin' kids. This is seriously making me reconsider my desire to do modding of my own if this is the kind of crap I'd have to deal with. Mods are not a right, they are a privilege. If you think Caustic HAS to provide you with this or you think Deus Ex NEEDS this in order to be enjoyable, you aren't a fan of Deus Ex to begin with and you shouldn't even be allowed to download mods.

Bass ackwards reasoning. What you are thinking is absurd. This isn't about mods being a "right". It is about personal honor. Caustic promised a release for nearly a year, and most recently said the release would be "soon". By no stretch of the imagination can a month be considered 'soon'. Moreover, their supporters deserve an explanation for being led along, then mocked (albeit humorously) for asking wtf. Thirdly, gaming culture = pure rage for lulz and always has. JC's balls were augmented. You should be more like JC.

Among the children I've seen, you're the worst of them. Find something productive to do. Your butthurt is very apparent and you should learn not to take petty things so personally. And please, your rage isn't for the "lulz", it's genuine. And you need to seek counseling for it, especially when it's over a video game mod.

@Subtonic: Funny to remember that one of the catches for the Deus Ex community used to be that it was mostly absent of the lol-kids that pollute more or less the rest. A bit sad that things had to change come May 2015.

You three stooges are the goofiest puppies to ever beg from a master. I AM the Deus Ex community! I've relished its beauty and wisdom since 2001. What's changed is that my generation had and still has honor, whereas this generation believes it can equivocate and prevaricate and defend the ethically indefensible... just because ARROGANCE. It's a disgrace. Were we face to face, I'd acquaint yours with my glove, sir! En garde!

So you think it is appropriate behavior in this situation to constantly brag that you're a tester with a pre-release copy? Meanwhile, people like us get nothing, not even a reason why we've had to wait for months through "releasing soon" nonsense posts. Very telling indeed.

I am one of the few productive and enlightened commenters here. If you would but follow my lead and echo my sentiments, Caustic would likely give us more information sooner rather than never. However, you have chosen brown-nosing unto ultimate humiliation.

Once i wrote in this discusion, that Revision is like John Romero Daikatana.
I WAS WRONG - DAIKATANA WAS RELEASED :-D it is funny how nerd fans still wrote " Take your time how much you need " How long will this mod in production? 10 years? ...lucky that we still have HDTP, New Vision and GMDX....i´ve never seen so unhappy type of public relation

What you fail to understand is that this isn't a paid for product, it's free (in every sense). That includes being made by people in their "free" time.

So you can shove your self entitled spam right up your ***. Make sure it stays in there this time.

Nothing is free. DXR costs honor and time, which currencies we pay the devs for their glory. And there's nothing more valuable than glory.

Oh, so you're saying a mod of this magnitude was undertaken by developers with absolutely no interest in pursuing a professional design career? If so, then yes, I can see why they wouldn't really care even if Squenix iced years of their work.
