In the context of this message, however, a message to the Internet community met with lively interest: does the Canadian developer studio Eidos Montreal work in the start of the said deal on a new Deus-Ex game?

Some well-known Twitter users have brought the rumor into circulation and now it is issued in places as a fact. In fact, Embracer or Eidos Montreal was still no official announcement made.

How likely is a return from Deus Ex?

The Deus ex brand has been practically dead ** since the last branch, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided from 2016. Although the cyberpunk role-playing game received good reviews, publisher Square Enix was dissatisfied with the sales figures, which is why the brand was then put on hold.

However, the fans have never given up Deus Ex and always hoped for a comeback. That could actually happen now. Because even if nothing is officially, the Embracer Group will have bought the traditional video game brands with a certain intention.

So you can almost certainly assume that one or the other brand will celebrate a comeback in the next few years. Deus Ex seems to be a suitable candidate ** for this.
