If anyone was fortunate enough to play the PC FPS/Action/RPG title Deus Ex, this news should be particularly exciting since the game has become somewhat of a cult hit. The director of Eidos France recently announced on a French-language TV station that a sequel to Deus Ex is indeed in the works. Eidos' new Montreal studio is making this sequel their first priority, calling it the "first mission" for their 40-person staff.
The first sequel to the game, Invisible War, didn't generate that much buzz, so hopefully the new crew leading development of this title will deliver an experience matching that of the first. Like ... using more intelligent dialogue like in the original game, as opposed to the sequel. With original devs Ion Storm out of the picture and creator Warren Spector busy with other projects, it's going to be a battle to win over longtime fans. We'll keep you posted on this one -- it may be good.
