According to a recent claim, Eidos Montreal is creating a new Deus Ex game

It has been reported that Human Revolution and Mankind Divided creators Eidos Montreal would bring back the cyberpunk setting of Deus Ex. Following yesterday’s disclosure that sibling company Onoma is shutting down, Bloomberg reported the tidbit of information indicating that the upcoming Deus Ex game is at the very, very early phases of development. Eidos Montreal is also rumored to be working on a brand-new game and contributing to the co-development of a few Microsoft-owned franchises, including the upcoming Fable.

Since Eidos Montreal’s last attempt at Deus Ex was six years ago, it seems like a reasonable amount of time has passed before any new installment in the franchise. More Deus Ex titles, as well as other purchased IP like Tomb Raider and Legacy Of Kain, were seen as having “huge promise” by the development studio’s new owner, Embracer Group, earlier this year. The creators of Legacy of Kain, Crystal Dynamics, have already conducted surveys to gauge possible interest in new games in that series, as I mentioned last month.

Embracer acquired a number of Square Enix studios in May; the transaction was finalized in August. Only a few weeks after the studio announced its rebranding as Onoma, it was revealed yesterday that the Square Enix Montreal studio will close. Deus Ex Go creator Onoma, which shut down, would send some employees to Eidos Montreal to work on projects there.

There are currently no confirmed details on the release date of the forthcoming Deus Ex. When we learn more, I’ll be sure to let you know. Why not go at our ranking of the top PC stealth games while you wait?

It’s intriguing to note that the launch of the long-awaited piracy simulator Skull and Bones has led to a notable increase in players returning to Ubisoft’s previous game, the pirate-themed Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

PCGamesN gathered data from SteamDB and observed that on February 15, 2024, the day before Skull and Bones launched, approximately 971 players were simultaneously playing Black Flag. By the 16th, the figure had nearly doubled, hitting 1,662. By the 17th, the number had increased to 2600, and by the 18th, it reached 3,226. After a week of continuous gameplay, a new peak was achieved on the 26th, with 3,594 players online simultaneously. With the game’s peak hitting 16K a decade ago, it’s a fascinating illustration of how success can benefit everyone involved, pun intended.

One can’t help but sympathize with developer Ubisoft Singapore in this situation. We thoroughly appreciated Skull and Bones after overcoming the initial comparison to Black Flag, which was a point of contention in our review. Ubisoft’s latest release faces a major challenge due to players’ existing expectations and a lack of clear direction for several years.

As an Epic Store exclusive, it’s challenging to gauge the performance of Skull and Bones, especially since console numbers have not been disclosed. Insider Gaming cites sources within the company who claim that 850,000 people have downloaded the game, with the eight-hour free trial that Ubisoft is offering contributing to this figure. It’s worth noting that the developers described the game as top-tier quality and were adamant about pricing it at $70.

It’s astonishing that two years have passed since a standout Elden Ring player emerged victorious, solidifying their claim to the Elden Lord throne by engaging in repetitive ritual battles. The character known as Let Me Solo Her valiantly defeated the game’s toughest boss on behalf of players, earning legendary status in the gaming community.

Currently, LMSH is engaged in a battle against Malenia but is eagerly anticipating Shadow of the Erdtree as a potential opportunity to end the conflict. After the DLC was announced, IGN interviewed a player with extensive experience in Elden Ring, boasting over 1,200 hours of gameplay. They claim to have defeated Malenia thousands of times and even completed the game using a unique mod.

LMSH is eagerly anticipating Shadow of the Erdtree, expressing confidence in director Hidetaka Miyazaki’s ability to deliver another outstanding masterpiece for players to enjoy. The terrifying Messmer, who Miyazaki confirmed to be a significant character in the DLC and on par with other potent figures in the game, is the new enemy in LMSH, as depicted above. Could this be a new adversary for LMSH?

The upcoming DLC for Elden Ring, Shadow of the Erdtree, is highly anticipated and is set to release on June 21st for PS5 and PS4. Do you think LMSH will be able to progress? Or do you think they are destined to dance with Malenia forever? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
