Deus Ex 3?


From IGN, 'Eidos Confirms Next Deus Ex':
US, May 17, 2007 - In a recent interview on French-language television station MusiquePlus the director of Eidos France, Patrick Melchior, revealed a new Deus Ex game is in the works. The revival of the franchise is the "first mission" of Eidos' new Montreal studio, currently made up of around 40 people.

Deus Ex is an action RPG series created by Warren Spector and Ion Storm and originally released by Eidos in 2000. The game received a sequel, Deus Ex: Invisible War, in 2003, but since then the series has been dormant. Ion Storm shut its doors in 2005, and Warren Spector is working on a game with his new Junction Point Studios. Details on this revival are not clear at this time, but Melchior says we can expect to hear more about the next Deus Ex game in a few months.
The original Deus Ex is close to my heart and still one of my Top 5 games. I was extremely disappointed by DX2, but would welcome any revival of the franchise. Yeah, there's a big chance it will suck. But there's also a slight chance it'll be great. And that's better than nothing, eh?

It seems like the FPS/RPG genre is enjoying something of a renaissance - and I'm not complaining.
