A NeoGAF user came across an entry for Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut for the Wii U today on Amazon.com. The entry lists the release date as May 7th. Square Enix has not announced anything concerning a Wii U port of the 2011 first-person stealth shooter at this time, but with PAX East just around the corner, this may have been one of their announcements. Joystiq asked Square Enix about this and received the standard “We don’t comment on rumor or speculation” line.
The entry goes on to list a couple of factoids about Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut, most of which should be familiar to anyone who has played the game. It does mention one new item, though. The Wii U GamePad will play some part as a new augmentation called the “Neural Hub.” Beyond the name, we don’t know anything else about this new feature. We also don’t know if this Director’s Cut will include the DLC story “The Missing Link” or any other new story additions that a label like “Director’s Cut” might entail.
Since Square Enix has yet to say anything official, we can’t classify Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut as confirmed. We might even be able to brush it off as just Amazon creating a placeholder for a tentative title, but the new, professional-looking box art says otherwise. Don’t bother looking for it now, though—Amazon has taken down the entry as of this writing.
