Eidos Montreal have confirmed that the mysterious Deus Ex Universe will not be an MMO nor any specific game at this moment in time.
Today Sacha Ramtohul stated “As you can imagine, the Dawn Engine will form the cornerstone for all Deus Ex Universe projects at Eidos-Montréal. Some of you have had concerns that ‘Universe’ meant ‘MMO’. Rest assured, it does not.”
“Deus Ex Universe is the name we are giving to the fictional world and the rich lore we are creating for it, which will of course include core games, as well as any other projects that will help bring the world of Deus Ex to life. We won’t go into too much detail for now, but what we envision is for our projects to have meaningful ties to one another, in order for them to strengthen and deepen your experience within this Universe.” he continued.
Deus Ex Universe was announced last year, and we’ve heard very little about it since. Studio head David Anfossi described Universe as “an ongoing, expanding and connected game world built across a generation of core games.” It will span several forms of media including games, books, comics, graphic novels, and more.
