The new Deus Ex game would be handled by Eidos Montreal, the company's new studio announced earlier this year. Approximately 350 jobs are expected to be created by the studio. One of Eidos' three teams, comprised of around 40 staffers, would be responsible for the upcoming Deux Ex project.
It is unlikely that Warren Spector, series creator and project director on Deus Ex, or Harvey Smith, lead designer on Deus Ex and project director on its sequel Deus Ex: Invisible War, will be involved with the project in any capacity. Spector is currently working on a Source-powered game at his Austin, Texas-based Junction Point Studios, while Smith is serving as creative director at Midway Austin on the upcoming BlackSite: Area 51.
Eidos' domestic operations have yet to comment on these reports.
