Eidos-Montréal is working on a new Deus Ex game following its separation from Square Enix and official acquisition by Embracer Group in August this year, according to new tweets from Jason Schreier. Schreier, who works as a games journalist for Bloomberg News, claimed yesterday that the studio is working a new installment of Deus Ex, although work on the game was “very, very early.” Elias Toufexis, the voice behind Adam Jensen, later chimed in and admitted that he knows nothing about the project, warning that the protagonist of Human Revolution and Mankind Divided may not even be part of it. Some rumors have suggested that this new Deus Ex game could be a remake or reimagining of the original Deus Ex released by Ion Storm in 2000.
I’m glad they are (seemingly?) working on a new #DeusEx. Please stop asking me because I don’t know anything about it or if Adam Jensen is even going to be a part of it.— 𝙴𝚕𝚒𝚊𝚜 𝚃𝚘𝚞𝚏𝚎𝚡𝚒𝚜 (@EliasToufexis) November 1, 2022
I love the series and I hope to play Jensen again. I have zero info! https://t.co/CRaoRjJkzg
GamesBeat journalist Jeff Grubb claimed to have heard in August that a new Deus Ex was being discussed at Eidos-Montréal, one that would do what CD PROJEKT RED’s sci-fi RPG couldn’t:
We don’t know, really, what to expect from an Embracer-owned, Crystal Dynamics, Eidos Montreal. It’s early, the rumblings I’ve heard…they want to get right back into [Deus Ex]. They want to do what Cyberpunk 2077 couldn’t; that’s the word going around. I mean, we’ll see if that happens. It’s so early, who knows what that will turn into, but that was probably not even…there was no possibility of that conversation to even begin under Square Enix, right?
