Hackers, cyborgs, transhumans, and mere meatbags, delight: more Deus Ex is coming. Eidos Montreal today announced a yet-unnamed new game is in development for PC and next-gen consoles, as the centrepiece of a transmedia blitz called Deus Ex: Universe.
Studio head David Anfossi explains in a blog post that trans-human segregation is "a backdrop to our vision for the next Deus Ex." He drops a spot of fine concept art, which he says "represents a 'ghetto-city' voluntarily built in order to separate the classes. The people in this segregated class have reshaped their environment, nostalgic for their ideal of Cyber Renaissance."
It's still early days so we shouldn't expect to hear much for some time, but Anfossi says that "most of the team behind Deus Ex: Human Revolution is already working hard on this new game."
The Deus Ex: Universe transmedia-o-rama is also to include mobile games and things, books, graphic novels, and other typical tie-in fare, so it seems to mostly be a branding exercise.
