Deus Ex isn't dead, Eidos Montreal boss confirms

While we had a pretty good time with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the community at large seemed to feel otherwise as the game wound up hurting things in a big way. After a lackluster sales report, rumors were swirling last year that Eidos Montreal had effectively shelved the franchise so they could focus on other properties.

While we haven't heard a lot of about what's going in since those reports, studio David Anfossi spoke to PCGamesN that although Shadow of the Tomb Raider is Eidos Montreal's main focus right now, Deus Ex is not dead in the slightest.

"Deus Ex, of course, it's the brand of the studio. We are all attached to this franchise, but we cannot do everything, you know?" he said. "So we have Shadow of the Tomb Raider, we have this co-development with Crystal [Dynamics] on The Avengers, and we have a third game in development, so it's enough at the moment for us." 

Speaking of rumors, they say that the third title Anfossi mentioned above may be based on Guardians of the Galaxy, though that is yet another report that hasn't been addressed despite surfacing in 2017. Also, sad news for Thief fans - in that same interview, he said there are no plans to revive the property once more after Thi4f (yeah, remember that?).
