Likely new Deus Ex game beginning development within the year. I’ve heard, thanks, no need to bring it to my attention. The DX community is fan-frickin’-atical, we know these things before IGN and GameSpot get around to writing about it.
My reaction? Eidos Montreal is a brand new studio, so I have no idea what sort of games they’ll want to make. But it can go two ways:
1) “Invisible War was a step in the right direction, but it wasn’t an all out commercial success, and I think if we streamline some more, we can do well!” (translation: “Let’s clusterfuck the fanbase, guys!”)
2) “Okay Crystal Dynamics did a pretty good job turning the rather dead Tomb Raider franchise around by going back to what made the first game so awesome, while still improving and modernizing the concept here and there. It was a success, and the fans loved it. Let’s ignore IW and see what we can do with the original DX formula.” (translation: “YAY!”)
