Well, when it comes to trailers, you have to pander a little.
Just recently, we saw the announcement trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (watch it below if you haven't already). It went over well with gamers but what does the original franchise creator think?
Warren Spector weighed in on that debut video on Reddit , saying he hopes the new Deus Ex offers a bit more than what he saw in the trailer. After first saying he loved Human Revolution (one of the few games he has finished), he mentioned some reservations about Mankind Divided :
"I thought the Mankind Divided trailer was pretty violence-o-rific, which bugged me a little. I mean, Deus Ex was never about killing stuff. It was about picking your own play style, which might involve killing stuff."
Even so, he knows trailers have to be filled with "action-packed stuff" and considering the success of the last title, there's no reason to deviate from that tried-and-true Deus Ex formula. So, Spector isn't exactly worried. He just wasn't overly enamored with the launch trailer, which is fine.
The end result should be pretty special. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is currently in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
