Deus Ex, a trilogy of adventure role-playing games, was originally recognized for depicting a dystopian future in which clandestine groups fought for dominance of the planet. Invisible War, the successor to 2000’s Deus Ex, was released in 2003. As a result of Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s positive reception, the series underwent a gentle relaunch in 2011. In 2016, the video game Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was released on the PlayStation 4.
Mankind Divided’s revenues, in contrast to those of the Human Revolution, fell short of projections, and as a result, Square Enix has put a stop to all future games. Several Deus Ex enthusiasts are hopeful that a fresh game is in development now that Embracer Group has bought Eidos-Montreal.
No, There Are No Such Plans
The possibility of any future Deus Ex titles is currently disputed, according to a key member of the series’s development team. When asked about the possibility of another Human Revolution or Mankind Divided, Adam Jensen’s vocalist and Human Revolution as well as Mankind Divided performer Elias Toufexis said he was unaware of any such plans. Toufexis is a frequent tweeter who keeps followers updated on his upcoming projects whenever he has a chance to do so. Toufexis, like so many other entertainment workers, is required to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA).
Until now, the latter has not been able to determine his role as the Penguin in Gotham Knights. He has indicated that he is not concentrating on Deus Ex at the moment. After “Deus Ex,” he has appeared in about 30 titles, he tweeted. “I’m working on a few games that are larger than Deus Ex at the moment.” It’s plausible that Toufexis’ future involvement in Gotham Knights might be one of the “larger” ventures he mentioned.
I tweet about anything in gaming and then articles come out saying I’ve confirmed Deus Ex. Guys, I’ve done something like 30 games since Deus Ex. I’m on a couple right now that are even bigger than Deus Ex.
Don’t worry, I will let you know when I know anything. pic.twitter.com/hLC36nWp4t

Some questioned the performer’s promise that he will inform his followers if he received any information, pointing out that NDAs abound. A fresh Deus Ex title will be an excellent addition to Embracer Group’s catalog of well-known properties, even if they have bought other companies besides Eidos Montreal and other large IPs like Marvel’s Avengers as well as Guardians of the Galaxy.
At this time, it’s unclear how many of Embracer Group’s purchased IPs would see a new game release in the near future. As much as supporters might enjoy a successor to Sleeping Dogs, it might be that Embracer prefers the Marvel titles above the successful like this. Crystal Dynamics is also working on a novel Tomb Raider adventure, which means Embracer already has a blockbuster game in the pipeline.
