Ex-Eidos Montreal boss Stephane D’Astous, who left the studio last Friday, has come out firing shots at his former parent company. Eidos Montreal is the development studio behind Deus Ex: Human Revolution and the upcoming Thief reboot. Their parent company, Square Enix, develops games both in Japan and in the west under their Eidos branch.
“We didn’t ask for this!” came the cry of PC and console fans, angry with the revelation that the next Deus Ex game would be an episodic mobile adventure. They don’t want to play it on their phones or tablets. It’s a pity, really, because The Fall is nearly every bit the Deus Ex game Human Revolution is.
It might not be on the platform you wanted it to be on, but you have to admit Deus Ex: The Fall looks pretty sweet. A lot of folks were angry over the revelation earlier this week that the next game in the Deus Ex series was coming to iOS and Android devices. After years of playing on PC and consoles, that’s understandable.
The problem with April Fools’ jokes is that 50 per cent of the time I wish the prank product was actually real. Eidos Montreal contributes to the problem with their version of a prank: the “reveal” of an 8-bit Deus Ex game.
Just a day after some troubling reports surfaced about Square Enix’s medieval stealth game, what appears to be a leaked trailer for Thief 4 has appeared on YouTube.
Success, commercial and critical, is a positive thing — but it also comes with pressure. So when Eidos Montreal did such a great job with Deus Ex: Human Revolution, expectations were instantly raised for their next title — Thief 4.
