Eidos Montreal puts Deus Ex on hiatus to develp Guardians of the Galaxy game

Recently, publisher Square Enix announced a new partnership with Marvel to bring forth a new series of Marvel-inspired games. What we knew at that time was that we’d be seeing an Avengers game coming sometime in the next few years. It seems that isn’t the only thing that Square Enix is bringing to the table. Deus Ex developer Eidos Montreal, which is under Square Enix, has reportedly put the Deus Ex series on hiatus according to Eurogamer.

It doesn’t seem like that’s such a big deal, given that Mankind Divided launched to underwhelming sales in comparison to its predecessor Human Revolution. Granted, it did well in the UK, topping charts upon release, but it just wasn’t as strong elsewhere. The interesting part is that Eidos Montreal will now be working on a brand new Guardians of the Galaxy game.

Now I must say that as a big Deus Ex fan, it’s a little disheartening to know that we won’t see another game in the series for a while. But, that doesn’t mean that I’m not enthusiastic to see what Eidos will do with GotG. If you really think about it, the world of Deus Ex is very similar to many environmental themes we see in the Guardians universe. I really think that it was genius to have Eidos handling that particular franchise.

So far, there really isn’t any other information eluding to any particulars on the game nor anything else, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated. Are you excited to see a Guardians of the Galaxy game by Eidos Montreal? Let us know in the comments below.
