Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut No Longer Wii U Exclusive

The Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut was originally announced as a Wii U exclusive, with port specialist Straight Right stating that it would not end up on other consoles.

So, yeah, about that.

"After our Director's Cut announcement we received an overwhelming response from the community asking us to bring this ultimate edition of human revolution to other platforms," said Stéphane D’Astous, General Manager of developer Eidos-Montreal. "You asked for this!"

Square Enix confirms that the DXHR Director's Cut will also be available for PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and Mac - including the new content, developer diaries, redesigned bosses and graphical upgrade. Even the Wii U GamePad-specific features will be ported to Vita and SmartGlass to use as companion controllers.

It's out later this year.

The game that DX:HR should have been from day one - tweaked in a few places, but 99% the same game as you got a year and a half ago.
And surely everyone has played it by now. It very quickly dropped to around a tenner on all platforms, and has stayed below a tenner for over a year now.

How many people are going to pay for this?

As for the Wii-U losing another "exclusive", I would love to know how that's happening. To my mind, either Nintendo's exclusivity contracts are incredibly shoddily put together (seems unlikely), or they're letting publishers pay their way out of exclusivity.

I look forward to Lego City Undercover, Wonderful 101, and Sonic Lost World all appearing on xbox360 soon, then.

I bought DX:HR for PC when it was £3 or something similar not long ago, thinking what a bargain and that I would add it to my list of games to play when I upgrade my machine next.
But now I'm wondering if I'll get the Director's Cut as I'd rather play that from what people have said about it.

If you can get it cheap I'd definitely recommend going for the new cut over the old one. Ignoring the commentaries, new game plus, and all that bo11ocks, the Director's Cut has to be worth it purely for the revamped boss fights. (For anyone who didn't know, they were farmed out to another team at the time, and whilst they weren't actually that bad when looked at on their own, they didn't fit in with the rest of the game at all. It was quite glaring that something was amiss.)

That said, I don't think anyone's actually seen the director's cut yet, have they? I'm just assuming the revamped boss fights are better than in the original game!

Kudos Jon for calling it three months ago:
"...exclusively on Wii U. Whether Ninty's console will retain the exclusive is another matter..."
Possibly said tongue-in-cheek at the time, but prophetic nonetheless. :(
