In an interview that we conducted with Square Enix producer James Wright, a PC and console sequel to the critically acclaimed Deus Ex: Human Revolution was heavily implied to be in the works.
When asked about whether or not Square Enix was feeling any pressure about the release of Deus Ex: The Fall after the rage-filled fan reaction to the game’s announcement, Wright dropped a hint that Deus Ex diehards may see the Human Revolution sequel they’re looking for, in the future:
“Well, I think the reaction was understandable. You’ve got people that are PC gamers [and] console gamers and they wanted a continuation of the series on PC and console. Deus Ex: The Fall doesn’t really detract – and I can’t really talk too much about this – but it doesn’t really detract too much from any other thing that we might be doing.”
Reading between the lines, it appears that the disgruntled fan base’s wish for a fully formed Deus Ex: sequel will be happening, somewhere down the line.
