The greatest gaming pleasure of 2011 was sneaking around future Detroit, getting right up behind a militant humanist that thinks cybernetic implants are evil, and tasering that guy right in the butt. Deus Ex: Human Revolution was spectacular and delicious in almost every way. It took nearly a decade for a third Deus Ex game to come out after Deus Ex: Invisible War. Based on job postings recently listed on LinkedIn, it looks like we won’t have to wait too long for Deus Ex 4 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720.
As noted by superannuation on Twitter, job postings on LinkedIn correlate with others for unannounced projects listed on Deus Ex: Human Revolution developer Eidos Montreal’s website. These positions will work on a “AAA action/adventure” for “new platforms coming in the next two years.”
The listing reads: “The project is based upon an existing IP that is a well known and respected action/adventure title, with elements of choice and stealth with the gameplay. The future iterations of the franchise intend to really take advantage of the new platforms coming in the next two years to provide an experience with unparalleled realism, depth, and consequence for player action and choice.”
Stealth, choice, and consequence are Deus Ex’s raisons d’etre.
