Deus Ex: Universe Announced, Confirmed for Next Gen
Eidos Montreal has announced that it is looking to greatly expand the ‘Deus Ex’ universe with a massively ambitious project aptly named Deus Ex: Universe.
Deus Ex: Universe will expand Eido’s Cyperbunk franchise into other froms of media, and onto different platforms – such as tablets, graphic novels, books, etc. The plan of the project is to regularly add to the Deus Ex franchise, as well as offer an underlining “deep conspiracy” that will arch over multiple games.
In a post on Eidos’ community site, the head of the company – David Anfossi – described the project and outlined its key concepts and goals.
“The concept behind Deus Ex: Universe is to create an ongoing, expanding and connected game world built across a generation of core games. 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.”
Anfossi confirmed that Eidos is already in production of Deus Ex: Universe with a new Deus Ex game for PC and next-gen consoles, and wants us to know that most of the team that worked on Deus Ex: Human Revolution is hard at work on this game.
Anfossi, to me, also hints that the vision behind this new Deus Ex game is trans-humanism segregation, which is touched in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. A new game may further expand on this theme, and perhaps provide a more hard-hitting, enlightening experience about humanity and human beings in general.
Even though a next-gen title has been confirmed, Anfossi says not to expect anything of Eidos anytime soon. It sounds like he instead just wanted us to know what’s going on with the Deus Ex IP.
