Square Enix says Deus Ex isn't dead, has to "wait its turn"

Square Enix says Deus Ex isn't dead, has to

However, before seeing a new chapter in the series, there is still some time for it to launch.

Many people believed there was a fair amount of bitterness regarding "getting rid of" the developer and its franchise, but Square Enix president and CEO Yosuke Matsuda recently spoke up, talking with GamesIndustry International to explain why the company sold the rights of the series back to its developer - and it's a surprisingly logical answer.

So, when are we getting a new Deus Ex game?

That being said, Matsuda added that top Square Enix representatives are "already internally discussing and exploring what we want to do with the next installment of it [Deus Ex]". Apparently, Square Enix has a few big titles in development, and Deus Ex is just waiting for its turn at bat again.


"What I can say is Eidos Montreal has always developed Deus Ex, and the issue is we do not have limitless resources", Matsuda said. For now, it appears that seems to be the case with Deus Ex as far as a new title, and that the reason there isn't a new title in the franchise right now is "just a product of our development line-up because there are other titles we are working on".

It was no secret that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was somewhat of a disappointment for the well-esteemed series as sales were low enough that it was put on the backburner at the start of this year.

Matsuda stressed that Deus Ex is an important franchise for them and they are now exploring options for the next installment. Eurogamer, for instance, "understands" that future instalments have been put on hiatus due to the multi-game partnership.

"I believe that the level of the game that we're developing right now, as far as I have seen, is fantastic and you'll be seeing news about it going forward", Matsuda added. Therefore, it will be interesting to see whether the next game will pick up where Mankind Divided ended.
