"Square Enix has apologised for not communicating the jailbroken restriction in advance and plans to rectify the matter with an update "in the near future" that will remove it.

The statement failed to address why this restriction was ever added in the first place. I've asked about this and was told that the mobile team was already off for the weekend but that my query would be passed along. I'll update as I find out more.

The full statement Square Enix sent us is as follows:

"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."

Yeah, that didn't take long. I fully expect the Eidos name and brand to be dead and buried by the start of 2015.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

^First I'll like too see how Thief turns out. That project seems to have been through some rough times in development.
