Warren Spector So Not Done With Deus Ex

Warren Spector, creator of Deus Ex, isn't letting the fact he no longer has access to the series stop him from dreaming up more games in the series. Well, maybe not series. "Series".

Spector - currently at work on Epic Mickey - has told Variety that prior to picking up work the Disney gig, he and his wife had been kicking some ideas around for new projects, one a massive piece of original IP, the other a "spiritual successor" to Deus Ex.

He says that at one time he tried to get the rights to his game back from publishers Eidos, but they weren't willing to part with it, so Spector was forced to come up with a Go-Bots to Deus Ex's Transformers.

"There were and still are ‘Deus Ex' stories I would like to tell. That story is not done for me," he told Variety. "[For the sci-fi game]I sort of filed the serial numbers off. ‘Deus Ex' was very much a game of the millennium."

    Interesting bit of news. Deus Ex still is my number 1 game of all time. The story was incredible for the time it was relased and still holds up better than most games released today. IW wasn't as good because of the gameplay but the story was still incredibly fascinating. Not many games can get a whole bunch of gamers talking about world politics like the Deus Ex series did.

    Shame he isn't involved with Deus Ex 3. But to be honest, I didn't enjoy Invisible War too much so *shrugs*.

    If they do make it they should call it 'Ex Machina'

    Ohhh no. You had your chance Wazza. No do-overs for you!

    I thought this had something to do with Billy Mays.

    *yawn*

    I hope he gets that chance, even though I'm rather hoping Ubi don't completely screw up Deus Ex3. I would have said "Looking forward to", but my expectations were dramatically shot to pieces after trying to play DX2.

    I didn't think that Warren Spector had much to do with DX:IW? Heard on the grape vine that he saw what they were doing, and warned them that they were changing too much but the developers didn't want to listen.

    He makes awesome games, maybe he could have a crack at System Shock 3 instead? :)
