Eidos Has Something For the Marvel Fans
Marvel fans there is some exciting news for you all. Eidos Interactive is working on a Guardians of the Galaxy game. While the game is still in its nascent stage, there are a lot of hopes attached to it.
With DC comics already having a presence in the gaming industry, it was time for Marvel to step in as well. Marvel has chosen to enter the industry with Avengers and Guardians. With the announcement of the Avengers game coming last week, it was known that Marvel and Eidos have been working on another game as well. The Guardians sequel is slated for release later this year and the studio would be looking to cashing in their hard work early.
Both the games will be coming out around the release of the movies. This means that although the Avengers game had been announced earlier, we will have to wait till next year before we can get our hands on it.
What could this mean for Deus Ex Series?
“From what we hear, Square Enix doesn’t plan to greenlight another Deus Ex game at Eidos Montreal for quite some time, unless Mankind Divided suddenly becomes more profitable,” Kotaku reported. “Mankind Divided was a large investment for the Japanese publisher, taking nearly five years to make.”
Eidos had already began developing the Avengers game, as they had already put Deus Ex on the back seat. It is only fair for them to move to a more attractive game and a big franchise. Besides it doesn’t appear that Deus Ex had been profitable enough to keep them interested.
