Next-gen Deus Ex 'in development', studio confirms

Core Human Revolution team working on new game; First art released

Eidos Montreal is currently working on a new Deus Ex game for next-gen consoles and PC, the developer has confirmed.

Studio head David Anfossi shared the news on the company's website, confirming that the core team behind 2011's Deus Ex: Human Revolution is working on the project.


The announcement was published alongside the first early concept art for the game, which is said to showcase the "trans-humanism segregation" which will act as the backdrop for the sequel.

"It represents a 'ghetto-city' voluntarily built in order to separate the classes," Anfossi explained.

"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."

The game's next instalment is set to be published under a new "ambitious idea" called Dues Ex: Universe, Anfossi said, "an ongoing, expanding and connected game world built across a generation of core games".

The Universe concept will span traditional PC and console games, in addition to mobile projects, books and graphic novels.

The Deus Ex series was expanded with iOS title Deus Ex: The Fall and novel Deus Ex: Icarus Effect.

He explained on the Eidos Montreal site: "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."

It has also been confirmed today that Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut will be released on Wii U later this month.
