The new Deus Ex prequel was meant to be on shelves/digital distribution by March next year but it has been confirmed by the games publisher, Square Enix that it's pushed into the next fiscal year which begins in April 2011.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution delayed |

The company explained the delay in a written statement:

With weak sales performance of console game titles that have been newly released during the current fiscal year as well as harsh market feedback regarding a key title, the Group recognises the reinforcement of development capability in our Digital Entertainment segment as our most critical managerial issue.

We therefore have decided to spend additional time to further polish our upcoming game, DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION, resulting in a shift in release timing from our prior plan of the current fiscal year to next fiscal year.

This could possibly stem from the harsh feedback their latest Final Fantasy title received, but whatever the reason it means Deus Ex is getting more polish and this can only be a good thing.
