Deus Ex 3 announced

Gamasutra reports that Eidos has announced Deus Ex 3, which is being developed at its new Montreal studio. Former Ubisoft executive Stéphane D’Astous commented:

“We’re only working on AAA, major titles. We’re going to be developing only major AAA games, using only next-gen technology.

We will want to limit our dev teams to a human-sized team of 80 people at the very highest of the peak in the production cycle. We don’t want to become a huge studio where there’s over 100 people on a title. We want a smaller, multi-discipline group that are tightly knit together. But by doing so, we will give them at least 18 to 24 months for the production cycle.”

There’s no real mention about when we’re to expect the sci-fi FPS/RPG, but it’s certainly good to know that a sequel is in the pipeline.
