If your were waiting with any anticipation at all over Square Enix’s iOS title Deus Ex: The Fall and you're using a jailbroken device iOS device then I imagine that you may have found out by now that Square Enix made the choice to not allow jailbroken iOS devices play the game. Well today in apparent response to a growing number of customer complaints Square Enix has changed their minds.

Deus Ex The Fall

 

“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 apologise 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.”

While we are waiting for the update to go live and grant playability on jailbroken iOS devices the iTunes App Store has changed the description of Deus Ex: The Fall to read:

 

 

“** Please be aware, the Deus Ex: The Fall play experience is currently restricted on jail broken devices. Do not purchase if you have voided your warranty and have Jail broken your device.” My thoughts regarding the anti-jailbreak feature is who got Square Enix to added it to the title? My bet Apple.
