port for Wii U and some exclusive content
new game that is starting development as Theif 4 comes to a close
So maybe it's more than that. A port-and-a-half. A Super Mario 64 DS situation - where it's a port with a sizable amount of new content.
Or maybe Nintendo's going all-in and is going Bayonetta 2 with the next Deus Ex game. WHO KNOWS IT'S A GODDAMN TRADEMARK THESE THINGS ARE ALMOST ALWAYS BULLSHIT
Human Revolution came out over a year-and-a-half ago. And they're only trademarking the title for this now -- not announcing the game yet. Sounds like a reasonable time frame to me.
Doubt they could make a new DE game in such a short time; probably the new Wii U version.
A “major Canadian company” has various vacancies available for a “semi open-world action adventure title that responds to player choice and interaction.”
The project, according to the listing, is based upon an existing IP which is a “well known and respected action/adventure title, with elements of choice and stealth within the gameplay.”
Future iterations of the franchise also “intend to really take advantage of the new platforms coming in the next two years to provide an experience with unparralled realism, depth and consequence for player action and choice.”
That's right. HR was kind of lame.
If you set it decades later, you risk running into Deus Ex 1 time period where mech-augs are old gray golems at flea markets to scare the children, or even worse, post-Deus Ex 1 (AKA the Unspoken Years).
They'd better. Somehow. Jensen was awesome.
Have it set decades later and we'll play as Old Jensen. Kept alive via nanomachines and hodge podge augmentation.
