Deus Ex Designer Making 'Immersive First-Person RPG'

Harvey Smith, lead designer on Deus Ex: Invisible War (PC), is at work on an "immersive first-person RPG" title.

Speaking at the Austin Game Developers Conference, Smith commented that his studio "Arkane ... is very focused on immersive first-person experiences," giving players an idea of what to expect from the Austin, Texas, office's future projects.

"My focus is very much around games like Deus Ex," said Smith in the speech as noted by Gamasutra. Smith worked on the original Deus Ex under famed game designer Warren Spector in addition to Thief: Deadly Shadows and System Shock.

The true continuation of the Deus Ex series, on the other hand, is in the works at Eidos Montreal and should be revealed soon.
