Eidos Montreal teases Deus Ex project

Eidos Montreal has begun dropping hints of a Deus Ex project, both referencing "The Fall" domains that we saw months ago, and mentioning a character from one of the novelizations.


A week out from E3, game studios have begun to tease what will almost certainly be game announcements made at the event. A set of messages from Eidos Montreal have revived the long-dormant talk of Deus Ex: The Fall.

The first tweet (via Videogamer) simply asked, "Are YOU ready for The Fall?" That seems straightforward enough given the domain registrations from March. A follow-up asks, "Who is Ben Saxon?" That clue is a bit more intriguing.

According to the Deus Ex Wiki, Ben Saxon was one of the two main protagonists of the 2011 Deus Ex novel, Icarus Effect. Saxon was a former British SAS agent who was, naturally enough for the Deus Ex series, augmented with all kinds of cybernetic doodads. He's already saved the world once, so that certainly sounds like a prime candidate for a new protagonist.

We'll likely know more within a week, but in the meantime Eidos seems to be dropping Twitter clues at a fairly regular pace. At the very least, this should be a more satisfying reveal than Deus Ex: Human Defiance.
