Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut launching October 22, next-gen Deus Ex in the works
Eidos-Montreal headman David Anfossi confirmed Wednesday that Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut will ship on October 22 for Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. In addition, Anfossi announced a new Deus Ex project for next-gen consoles and PC.
Anfossi went on to add with Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut, he “gave the team the envious task of pushing the boundaries of innovation and creativity to explore something we believe will become a big part of the future of the franchise, the second screen experience. When the game launches, players will have the opportunity to experience Human Revolution in a new and unique way through SmartGlass, the PSVita and the Wii U GamePad.”
A trailer for the upcoming director’s cut was also revealed in the blog post.
With the release of the director's cut, Anfossi’s hinted at the team's transition to their newest project, “Deus Ex: Universe,” which will push the series over to next-gen, while providing “meaningful content” for the franchise.
“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. Deus Ex: Universe will include PC and console games, but also additional Deus Ex games and experiences available in other media such as tablets, smartphones, books, graphic novels, etc..."
The announcement of Universe also ushered in the confirmation of a new Deus Ex game in the works, though Anfossi revealed very little aside from the anticipated future platforms and an earlier piece of concept art.
“I’m pleased to confirm that we are already into production of the starting point for Deus Ex: Universe with a new game for PC and next-generation consoles. We’re very excited about it at the studio and I wanted to let you know that most of the team behind Deus Ex: Human Revolution is already working hard on this new game. It took us four years to learn how to create a unique Deus Ex experience with Human Revolution and it was important for me to keep this knowledge within the franchise.”
