"The people in Tokyo are just so glad to work on it," said D'Astous. "This is the first project for them that's a non-Final Fantasy title--they even want to work on Thief 4 too."
The cyberpunk prequel was originally scheduled for release in late 2009--a date clearly no longer happening--with PC the only confirmed platform. It's unknown when Eidos' first entry in the hallowed Ion Storm-created shooter RPG series is now due to arrive.
Lead designer Jean-Francois Dugas simultaneously raised fan hopes and crushed their dreams in 2008 by saying Deus Ex 3 may not hit consoles due to its complexity--sequel Invisible War was often criticised as 'consolised'--while commenting that Ion Storm's original was "kind of slow" and had too few "exciting, memorable moments."
