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.
Teased earlier this week, Eidos Montreal has lifted the veil on Deus Ex: The Fall. It's a first-person shooter for iPhone and iPad that picks up where James Swallow's novel Icarus Effect left off.
In March, Square Enix registered some websites for something called Deus Ex: The Fall. It didn't raise too many eyebrows at the time because, whatever, dummy and decoy websites get made all the time.
Eidos-Montréal's new teaser is telling us something Thief-related is coming next Tuesday. Also, that's in-game footage. Best. Candle physics. Ever.
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.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution was a masterpiece which was only sullied by a number of poorly designed, ill-fitting boss battles. The bad news is that the game's upcoming DLC will also include a boss battle. The good news?
It's the flavour of the week here at Kotaku, and to echo Kirk's glowing review, every second I've been awake and not working I've been walking up to people and saying hello there have yo-ELBOW KNIVES.
