Eidos Montreal’s success with Deus Ex: Human Revolution would have been enough indication towards newer projects being on the way to the market. So here it is, a series of new games in the series, Deus Ex: Universe.
The project was announced on October 2 by David Anfossi head of Eidos Montreal through a post on the publisher’s blog where he went on to explain what the whole Universe is about. “The concept behind Deus Ex: Universe is to create an ongoing, expanding and connected game world built across a generation of core games” he said.
It is going to be a next generation focused project that will aim at funneling content in the Deus Ex world on a regular basis, with this Eidos plans “to deliver a deep conspiracy that will span several connected Deus Ex games, creating a more immersive and richer experience than ever before.”
In an attempt to broaden their scoop of audience, the developer is expanding to mediums like tablets, mobiles, books and graphic novels which will accompany PC and console games that come in Deus Ex: Universe.
The post also confirms that most of the team members that were applauded for their work on Human Revolution are already working on a next generation console and PC game. Talking of, the upcoming project is going to be based on “trans-humanism segregation” where division based on classes in rampant.
The take away at this point is “a piece of concept art from our(Eidos’) next-gen Deus Ex game that shows trans-humanism segregation, which is a backdrop to our(Eidos’) vision for the next Deus Ex. It represents a “ghetto-city’ voluntarily built in order to separate the classes. The people in this segregated class have reshaped their environment, nostalgic for their ideal of Cyber Renaissance. This dark and dystopian vision sets the tone for things to come in Deus Ex.”
So there it is, a dark dystopian backdrop for an already cyberpunk based RPG, what do you think of it?
