You're a jerk, Monday. A real jerk. There are few games closer to me than designer Warren Spector's Deus Ex. Sure, the sequel was barely worth playing, but there was so much more that could have happened with that universe. Spector apparently thought that, too, as he told The Cut Scene's Chris Morris that he attempted to re-acquire the rights to Deus Ex.
“There were and still are Deus Ex stories I would like to tell," he told the blog. "That story is not done for me."
Be still my beating heart.
Spector was developing what appears to have been a spiritual successor to Deus Ex at the Disney-acquired Junction Point. Disney now owns the rights to this unannounced project, but with Eidos moving forward with Deus Ex 3, the dream of a Spector-headed sequel has been dashed. Spector is also currently tied up with Disney Epic Mickey.
Still, it's nice to dream. And I wouldn't mind seeing Spector's new age take on the idea.
