Square Enix has announced that the first collaborative effort between the Final Fantasy publisher and the (fairly) recently purchased Eidos Interactive will in fact be Eidos Montreal’s next installment in the Deus Ex franchise.
As Square Enix general manager Stephane D’Astous told Edge Online, “Deus Ex 3 is going to be the first project which will be a concrete product of joint effort between Square Enix and Eidos. The cinematics—by which I mean any CGI pre-rendered cinematics — are going to be done in Tokyo by Square Enix, and that's going to be amazing."
D’Astous went on to say that the Square team is especially excited about the project since it will be their “first project…that’s a non-Final Fantasy title – they even want to work on Thief 4 too, so everyone is really excited.”
When I think of Deus Ex cinematics, the first thing that comes to mind if the opening of Deus Ex: Invisible War, because I can still remember being floored by it (When that goo melts down that guy's arm and goes on to consume all of futuristic Chicago? Come on!). So the thought of Square Enix creating “at least the trailer and the introduction cinematic” has me thoroughly intrigued.
I haven’t thought about Deus Ex: Invisible War in a long time, but I remember really digging it. Am I misremembering?
