Deus Ex: Human Revolution Receives A Release Date

We’ve finally got word (thanks to GAME) of the release date for Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Square Enix are going to be letting the game out into the wild on August the 26th. Last year the publisher announced that the game will be delayed to the next fiscal year (starting around April I believe) due to an over rich release calendar – basically saying they were afraid that Killzone 3, Bulletstorm, Crysis 2, or Homefront would harm their sales and rightly so.

Human Revolution has been catching the eyes of critics since the first announcement trailer appeared, the darker artistic tone and atmosphere immediately making it stand out. The game itself is structured like a RPG/FPS.

Is it just me or does August seem like ages away? Is that actually a safe zone in terms of competition for Deus Ex?
