Having worked in the industry for film, I know how hard it is to shape the hearts and minds of big companies and get them to do something out of the box. There are legal departments, product managers, marketing departments and a whole host of people who work behind the scenes who can be your greatest ally or enemy. Sometimes the work involved in making one thing happen can be bigger than one person and needs all these parts working together. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has put all these parts to work and have come up with marketing at its best!
Headed to Xbox One, PS4 and PC on February 23, 2016 Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will bring gaming fans around the world to the franchise and closer to the product managers hearts... Pre-order incentives when targets are met, it's a money machine waiting to be kicked in to action and as fans of the franchise and of the industry Square Enix have made us smile from ear to ear!
