It seems that the studio behind Deus Ex, Eidos Montreal, is very eager to be able to work on a new installment in the franchise. Everything we know so far here!
One of the video game franchises of the genre cyberpunk dearest is god ex, composed of six titles. The last four deliveries came from the hand of the study Eidos Montréalwhich were published through Square Enix. The last glimpse we had of the world of god ex it was in 2016 with the arrival of the last video game and after that installment we did not know much more about the future of the franchise.
The reason we didn’t have a Game 7 of god ex it would seem to be for Square Enix. According to rumors, the company in charge of distributing the games did not want the titles of the genre that the studio produces Eidos Montréal become part of their catalog and steal space or buyers from Japanese studios.
However, we no longer have to worry about the franchise having died for somewhat questionable reasons, as Square Enix decided to sell the rights to god ex Y Eidos Montréal in full to Embracer Group. Although the deal did not end there as studies were also included Crystal Dynamics and the rights of Tomb Raider. Embracer Group got all this with just $300 million and they have already confirmed that their intentions are to continue with two of the biggest video game franchises: tomb Raider Y god ex. I would do this through aftermath, remakes, remasters, spin offs and other types of formats besides video games.
On the other hand, the new owner of god ex and many rumors arose regarding the future of the franchise. Although the most interesting thing is that several sources assure that Eidos Montréal you are already talking to Embracer Group about his next project and it seems that god ex is one of the names that is being discussed.
In a recent podcast, the Insider Jeff Grubb commented that it is too early to talk about the subject. However, he explained: “The rumors I heard are that the studio wants to do something immediately with god ex. They want to go back to that. They want to challenge, they want to do what Cyberpunk 2077 couldn’t and stuff like that. That is what is being said. We’ll see if it happens. It’s too early to talk about that. But there was no chance of this conversation starting if the studio was still in the hands of Square Enix“.
There is no doubt that this is good news for fans of these two franchises. For now we can only wait for it to be confirmed that officially Eidos Montréal is working on the new installment of god ex.
