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.

"Yeah, we will be ready with Revision by the end of summer I think." - MrRobotBear, Deus Ex discussions at Steam.
If he really is one of the devs then I'm sorry but these guys are nuts. I mean they don't bother posting that here why? Meanwhile we are all waiting here day by day like idiots. Honestly f this mod, I'm outta here for good.

HA I was right, in one of my previous post I predicted release on September 18th.

The end of the summer for 2015 by text book definition is September 22nd

Yeah, well I wrote that yes. However it was an estimate only, and honestly at the time it was better then the "Soon" stuff that we've been doing. Perhaps I should have stressed that it's a very speculative estimate.

Oh, well. Guess I should stop checking this page every day.

But seriously, why post it on Steam and not here?

I don't get the "checking every day" thing. Isn't that what the Tracking feature is for?

RSS feeds are better, because they directly come into your email.

Here's the link to the actual comment: . It was made a year ago, when they were too confident of releasing quickly.

Wow, a year ago? Forget what I said, then.

Lettmon is grasping at straws.

Wow, it's that old?

Well it was a response to someones comment and not an official statement, and thus that's why it's on forum thread instead of on Moddb.
