I was a massive fan of the original Deus Ex, and I did enjoy Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and now I'm excited for the news of Deus Ex: Universe. It feels like it has come out of nowhere, really.
Edios Montreal's boss, David Anfossi, explains how the Deus Ex universe (heh) is going forward: "The concept behind Deus Ex: Universe is to create an ongoing, expanding and connected game world built across a generation of core games. It's a commitment on our part to deliver meaningful content that expands the franchise on a regular basis and to deliver a deep conspiracy that will span several connected Deus Ex games, creating a more immersive and richer experience than ever before. Deus Ex: Universe will include PC and console games, but also additional Deus Ex games and experiences available in other media such as tablets, smartphones, books, graphic novels, etc. I'm pleased to confirm that we are already into production of the starting point for Deus Ex: Universe with a new game for PC and next-generation consoles."
The image you see above is actually a piece of art from Universe, which depicts the results of "trans-humanism segregation" which will be a very big part of the game.
