Next-Gen Deus Ex, Human Revolution Director's Cut Confirmed

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is one of the current generation's best games.

Therefore, you should be excited to learn that developer Eidos Montreal has announced development of a next-gen franchise installment. As revealed at the studio's community website, the new Deus Ex is scheduled for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Boss David Anfossi said it took them four years to create a "unique Deus Ex experience with Human Revolution," and most of that same team is hard at work on the new offering. Thus far, they've only released one piece of concept art, which shows off "trans-humanism segregation," and that's supposed to be the backdrop for the next game. Basically, they're going to represent a "ghetto-city" that has been voluntarily built in order to separate the classes.

Of course, they've only just begun so we shouldn't expect to hear significant updates for a little while yet. We don't even have a title yet, after all. But we do know that this new iteration will be part of a fresh concept Eidos Montreal is calling the Deus Ex: Universe. They intend to generate an "ongoing, expanding, and connected game world built across a generation of core games." So, an MMO to go along with the standalone new entry, yes? This vision will include graphic novels, too.

Lastly, they also confirmed that a special Director's Cut version of Human Revolution will hit store shelves in North America on October 22 and in Europe on October 25. It'll be available for the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC and it will feature second-screen functionality via SmartGlass, Vita and the Wii U GamePad. If you missed out in 2011, get it.

Wasn't there supposed to be a patch for Deus Ex to fix some of the boss battles or something?
I was waiting on confirmation of the patch, before starting it.

Currently, it's next in line for me to play and finish, before the PS4 comes out.

Yup. I believe this was addressed in the current director's cut edition. The new one that is mentioned in the article seems to add the second screen functionality, and maybe some other fixes to the game. From the video that I've seen it seems like it has also added some other content as well as other additions and fixes compared to the original release

It was a good game but I don't think I'll be staying in that universe, I couldn't finish HR. I think I'll transfer over to Thief.

Definitely picking up the 'Director's Cut' (probably won't play it until after 'Arkham Origins'), and am eager to re-immerse myself in this universe. Love it.

Hmm, I never played Deus Ex: HR, may look into the Director's Cut. I assume it will include all DLC?

Deus Ex Human Revolution Best games of this Generation when it came out in 2011.
I hope the new Deus Ex will stick to the same great formula with Next Gen Game Quality Graphics and Story.
Glad its not a launch game ,I'm sure they'll use some of the PS4's computational prowess

I loved the HR universe and wished I had started with Deus Ex earlier. I really hope we get another installment for the next gen.

Human Revolution felt kinda flawed to me, and not just because of the boss battles. I'm still interested in what they can do with it, though. Also, I do really like the idea of trans-human segregation as a theme - it was sort of pointing that way with the bias against them in Human Revolution so to put it to the fore is a pretty cool idea.

And the Universe could be good, just so long as it doesn't dilute the experience. I get the feeling that the next Deus Ex game will be connected - it is the trend, after all - so there won't be both an MMO and an SP-oriented game. Sad, but true.

You are right, the controls were terrible and the stealth was poorly implemented. I ended up in gun battles even when I was moving really slowly. I enjoyed the visual style and cyber punk/futuristic world, but the game could have been much better. Best game of the generation when it released? Ha, Uncharted 2 came out in 2009 so not possible.

hardly surprising considering how well HR did, but still nice to know its coming.
just please this time can we have a little consistency in the game?
f*cking hate it when games let you choose whatever you want to do, then create missions forcing you to do it one way, or have one power.
whats the point of letting me choose if your practically going to make the choice for me?
choose what i want otherwise its nigh on impossible to pass this mission.
yea, thats real fun!
