Square Enix CEO Denies Deus Ex Hiatus Rumors

It received a 83 on Metacritic and an 82 on OpenCritic, but sales ultimately underperformed for Square Enix. However, before seeing a new chapter in the series, there is still some time for it to launch.

Recently, GamesIndustry had an interview with Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda where they asked him questions about the status of Deus Ex and Tomb Raider franchise, both of which are an important part of their Western studios.

Elaborating further, Matsuda continued, "What I can say is Eidos Montreal has always developed Deus Ex, and the issue is we do not have limitless resources".

The reason that we've not heard much on upcoming titles regarding Deus Ex or the now highly-successful Tomb Raider franchise is simply because of Square Enix shifting resources to its partnership deal with Marvel, keeping respective developers Eidos Montreal and Crystal Dynamics busy on the upcoming Avengers title. Apparently, Square Enix has a few big titles in development, and Deus Ex is just waiting for its turn at bat again. "So I thought that was the best way for the game to continue, and that's why we were supportive of the (management buyout) and of course they didn't mind if they continued to use the IP".

Speaking to the franchise's future, he also mentions that 'We are already internally discussing and exploring what we want do with the next instalment of it.' So if you're looking for more adventures of Adam Jensen and his metal-arm-wall-punching sandboxyness, the takeaway seems to be: watch this space. Mankind Divided is an odd case because the game simply ends on a fairly major cliffhanger, with the assumption that the story would carry on into a sequel.
