I’ve spoken a couple of times about my love for 2011’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It’s not a perfect game by any means, but it was a damn masterpiece in several other areas. But that’s not the end of the franchise, as next-gen consoles will be getting a taste of augmentation.
Eidos Montreal announced yesterday that new Deus Ex games were in development for PC and next-gen systems, under the label of Deus Ex: Universe. Studio head David Anfossi described the work as “an ongoing, expanding and connected game world built across a generation of core games,” on the Eidos Montreal blog.
I’m really excited to let you know that we are working on an ambitious idea which we’re calling Deus Ex: Universe. It’s a commitment on our part to deliver meaningful content that expands the franchise on a regular basis and to deliver a deep conspiracy that will span several connected Deus Ex games, creating a more immersive and richer experience than ever before.
Deus Ex: Universe will include PC and console games, but also additional Deus Ex games and experiences available in other media such as tablets, smartphones, books, graphic novels, etc.
I’m pleased to confirm that we are already into production of the starting point for Deus Ex: Universe with a new game for PC and next-generation consoles. We’re very excited about it at the studio and I wanted to let you know that most of the team behind Deus Ex: Human Revolution is already working hard on this new game.
It took us four years to learn how to create a unique Deus Ex experience with Human Revolution and it was important for me to keep this knowledge within the franchise.
Also revealed on the blog, is that the director’s cut for Human Revolution will be October 22 in the United States and October 25 in Europe for Xbox 360, PC, Playstation 3 and Wii U platforms.
I’m glad to see that Eidos hasn’t binned Deus Ex. They created something magnificent in Human Revolution, and with an established lore and style in place, I’d be dead keen to go back to the future.
This is what I asked for.
