Human Revolution Ships Two Million, Sequel Possible
Well, of course it's too early to confirm right now. The team is taking some much-deserved time off.
But with the relative success of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, gamers should be optimistic for the eventual return of the franchise. In speaking to Eurogamer, Eidos Montreal's Marce-Andre Dufort said that although he doesn't know what the future holds, they're currently celebrating a quality production. We weren't the only ones to sing its praises. In response to the question, "would you like to make another Deus Ex," Dufort replied:
"I would like to, but I don’t know what the future is right now. I know that Wada-san [Yoichi Wada, Square Enix president] said he had a plan for the future, but right now we’re celebrating the success of the game, since it’s the first game of the studio."
He added that there were a lot of babies born to employees during the creation of Human Revolution, a testament to the amount of time it took to produce a AAA title. It also proves that a great many people will want to spend time with their new/growing families. But with two million shipped, Square Enix will likely regard the game as a definite success, which means a follow-up effort will show up eventually...right?
