It’s all speculation right now, but it sounds like we might not get a new Deus Ex game for a while. Not from Eidos Montreal, at least. Instead, sources have told Eurogamer and various other outlets that Eidos Montreal may in fact be working on a game based on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
This would make a lot of sense, since we found out last week that Marvel Entertainment and Square Enix were going to work together to bring Marvel back to video games. This deal specifically cited that Eidos Montreal and Crystal Dynamics were two of the studios working the deal. The Avengers Project is being worked on by both Eidos Montreal and Crystal Dynamics.
Apparently, there was a sequel planned for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. But it’s not at all surprising to see them pulled off of that and put on a Marvel project. Especially one that consists of the Guardians of the Galaxy property, which could make for an exciting space action adventure game.
Eidos Montreal is very busy right now it seems with two Marvel projects on the go and Shadow of the Tomb Raider also getting love from them, as was reported back in October.
Are you excited for the potential of a Guardians of the Galaxy game? Or are you just disappointed by the fact that there won’t be any more Deus Ex in the future? Let us know in the comments below!
