Update:
Oh well... I think it's probably just a batch of registrations with no real games behind it - also found:
http://whois.domaintools.com/thiefgo.com
http://whois.domaintools.com/deusexgo.com
http://whois.domaintools.com/tombraidergo.com

Original post:

http://whois.domaintools.com/lifeisstrangego.com

http://whois.domaintools.com/justcausego.com

Both domains were registered by the corporate domain registration service CSC Domain Tools. Square Enix uses this company for all its domain registrations. For the above two, of course Square Enix isn't included in the WhoIs as of now as the registration is still private and new.

But the rest matches up with other domain registrations:
http://whois.domaintools.com/laracroftgo.com
http://whois.domaintools.com/justcause3.com
http://whois.domaintools.com/lifeisstrange.com

I just stumbled across the DeusExGo.com domain independently. Google search cache is still showing the registrant as Square Enix Limited (the UK office). So I suppose they changed the whois information sometime earlier this month after registration.



Could just be a brand protection thing. Maybe, maybe not!

Life is strange GO?

How would that look like?
If they were willing to add a manually activatable ability to the GO formula, seems like it could be straight forward from a puzzle perspective. Would be weird to consider whether they would even tie any narrative to it since Max's time from her getting the power going forward is pretty mapped out.

I love the possibility that there may be an actual video game, likely to sell millions, called Just Cause Go.

Just Cause Go.

The different stages could be multiple chapters of What if Chloe/Kate/Warren/etc got the powers instead, and some light hearted story stuff, nothing too serious. Just shenanigans in Arcadia Bay.

Hitman GO was amazing. I have Lara Croft GO but haven't played it. I have high expectations because Hitman GO I would say is one of the best mobile games ever.

I agree that Hitman GO was really good and at times great. Tomb Raider isn't quite as good but it's still good and sometimes even inspired. But it settles at being a cash-in and doesn't feel as inspired.

Cash in?

This is the first time I've seen anyone prefer Hitman go to LC Go actually. Lara Croft GO is fucking awesome. Hitman GO is merely great.

I was quite a bit disappointed with Lara Croft Go. Perhaps Hitman Go was just too good.

This is the first time I've read, in a direct comparison between the two, someone preferring Lara Croft.

Deus Ex seems like the next logical step for the series, maybe give the protagonist some kind of upgrade tree for different routes to clear each level.
I think simplicity is key to the series, having to take into consideration different inherent rule sets for different stages muddies the formula a bit.
