Had they come out and admitted the DX11 version was cut people would have been somewhat braced for this, though no one would have expected a game that looks worse than Halo 3 and looks like a garbage budget game.
I've been following the game casually over the years and never saw any mention of DX11. In fact I was under the distinct impression all along that it WOULDN'T have DX11 features, which is why I considered it a backwards step from AVP 2010.

I'm always wary of games when developers are unwilling to show off proper gameplay footage. Even when gameplay footage is shown - like with Bioshock Infinite - I'm still wary when it's shown in a very restricted way. ACM set off so many warning bells and it's a shame that so many people preordered it, especially when the early footage implied that the game was actually going to be half-decent.

It really doesn't bode well for the DLC Season Pass they've been promoting. I imagine that's going to be scaled back dramatically, if they don't simply refund everybody's money. It wouldn't surprise me - as rumoured - if the Wii U version is cancelled, because it has a small user base and few of those are going to take a risk on ACM. I wish Sega wouldn't fuck around with the franchise so much.
