Gun Update Coming for Deus Ex: The Fall on Jailbroken iOS Devices - News

Yesterday it was revealed that guns were locked out of Deus Ex: The Fall for players who purchased the game for jailbroken iOS devices. 

However, in the wake of this revelation, Square Enix has announced that they will be releasing a patch that removes this lock, allowing purchasers on all iOS devices to play the full version of Deus Ex: The Fall.

Here's Square Enix's statement in full: 

"We have not been clear in our communication earlier this week when we launched Deus Ex: The Fall. We did not state clearly that the game would not support jailbroken devices and so we will be switching this off via an update, so that all the supported iOS devices will be able to play the game in the near future. We feel it's the right thing to do in this situation and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. No customer should be out of pocket when we were not clear from the start, so we'll get the game updated as soon as possible so that everyone who wants to play Deus Ex: The Fall can do regardless of whether their device is jailbroken or not. As soon as this update is live we will communicate this via the Eidos Montreal Community channels."

Seems like another case of a needlessly intrusive anti-piracy measure that goes out of its way to punish legitimate customers. I'm glad to see that Square Enix and Eidos Montreal have made an about-face on this issue. Hopefully this sets a precedent for the future.
