New Deus Ex game reportedly in "very very early" development

A new Deus Ex title is reportedly in the works at Embracer Groups recently acquired Eidos-Montréal studio, albeit one thats still in the “very very early” stages of development.

Thats according to Bloombergs Jason Schreier, who made the claim in a tweet accompanying todays news of Square Enix Montréals closure.

Although no further details on the new Deus Ex project were shared, this would seemingly be the first known instance of a major Square Enix IP being revived under Embracer Groups watch since it acquired the likes of Tomb Raider, Thief, and Deus Ex – plus Square Enix Montréal, Eidos-Montréal, and Crystal Dynamics – as part of a $300m deal in May.

Eidos-Montréal is, of course, the most recent custodian of the Deus Ex series, having developed 2016s Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, supervised 2014 mobile spin-off The Fall, and created 2011s acclaimed Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The first two entries in the series – 2000s Deus Ex and 2003s Invisible War – were created by Warren Spectors long-defunct studio Ion Storm.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Eidos-Montréals most recent stab at the cyberpunk action-RPG, was well-received at launch, with Eurogamer saying the series mix of shooting and stealth continued to flourish in the studios hands. Since its release, Eidos-Montréal has earned praise for 2018s Shadow of the Tomb Raider and last years Marvels Guardians of the Galaxy.

A return to Deus Ex – even if its still some considerable way off – is long overdue.
