If you’re a fan of the Deus Ex universe, you may not see another entry in the cyber-punk RPG series for a while. According to a new report from Eurogamer, the franchise has been put on hiatus after failing to meet sales expectations.
Sources added that Eidos Montreal has largely shifted their efforts to working on the next entry in the rebooted Tomb Raider franchise. As per the newly announced partnership between Square Enix and Marvel, the team is also said to be working on a Guardians of the Galaxy game – in addition to the Avengers title they’re already collaborating with Crystal Dynamics on.
The latest entry in the Deus Ex universe was Mankind Divided, which launched in August 2016. This follows on from a revitalisation of the franchise in 2011 with Human Revolution. The franchise originally started back in 2000, merging first-person mechanics with RPG gameplay.
