Deus Ex , despite a relatively long hiatus recently, has been revered by gamers and critics for quite some time.
And the good news is that developer Eidos Montreal says there's "plenty of room" for more installments after next year's Deus Ex: Human Revolution drops. In speaking to Edge magazine and as noted by VideoGamer , game director Jean-Francois Dugas said that while it's natural to think about a remake, the new game takes place in 2027, which is about 25 years before the first game. Therefore, they could theoretically build a whole new series of prequels that lead up to the first Deus Ex title (which first released back in June of 2000). Art director Jonathan Jacques-Belletete elaborated:
"If you look at the history depicted in the franchise, you realise there are many great moments that have yet to be exploited. Reading Deus Ex's in-game writing, you find a huge amount of background. When you get into the 2030s, you could make many games exploiting all the events happening in that period. You have the secession of states, a huge earthquake, a massive financial crash, Mexico regaining control over the southern states of the US. There's so much material to exploit."
He clarified that they may not use such elements; they're just examples of what they could do, and that they'd have "no problem building a new series inside the franchise without touching those two existing games." For those of you excited about Human Revolution , they've released a new gameplay trailer that might intrigue you. The game is set to arrive on February 28, 2011. Yes, right around Killzone 3 …
