Developed under the watchful eyes of one Warren Spector, Deus Ex (promiscuously pronounced Day o' Sex) was a cyberpunk masterpiece which utterly laid waste to genre barriers and linear storytelling. The post-apocalyptic results are still remembered to this day, though less ambitious games have already rebuilt almost everything that was lost. It's about time we were visited by another catastrophe to conformity and indeed, a proper Deus Ex sequel. According to the director of Eidos France, Patrick Melchior, the plans to make that happen are already in motion.

In an interview with French-language television station, MusiquePlus (translated by IGN), Melchior asserts that the publisher's new Montreal studio has made its "first mission" an attempt to revitalize the Deus Ex franchise. It's awfully tempting to suggest a remake of the original, but that very thought seems like an insult to what the game meant to accomplish. Still, this seven year-old game would put many modern titles to shame.
