Default Deus Ex 3 - To be Multi-Platform?

March 1st, 2010, 07:19
Deus Ex 3 looks to be heading to XBOX 360 and PS3 to be "very attractive and accessible to a wider audience." Not that that is too much of a surprise.
Deus Ex 3 has only been announced for the PC so far. However, new evidence suggests it will be released for consoles as well.

A production manager for Eidos Montreal lists the game as "Deus Ex 3 - Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC" on his LinkedIn profile. The same platforms are also mentioned in a senior software engineer's profile. The LinkedIn page of a production coordinator who started working at Eidos last month says the same, which seems to rule out the possibility that console iterations were cancelled along the way.

Eidos Montreal boss Stephane D'Astous stated in a recent interview that they wanted to make DX3 and "very attractive and accessible to a wider audience." That would seem to suggest these games are multiplatform. Still, they're being coy for now.
More information.

But doesn't rule out the possibility that the PC version might be canceled along the way.

Word. And all the other elements that made DX2 so frustratingly mediocre.

Wait, what was that? Did my sarcasm meter just go ape-shit on me?

"Chess in particular had always annoyed him. It was the dumb way the pawns went off and slaughtered their fellow pawns while the kings lounged about doing nothing that always got to him; if only the pawns united, maybe talked the rooks around, the whole board could've been a republic in a dozen moves." - Commander Vimes in Thud! by Terry Pratchett

It's a natural defense mechanism - based on having our gamer-hearts broken beyond repair by the modern gaming industry.

Worse than what? Never heared of this "Invisible War" stuff.

You sound just like those people who keep talking about "Alien 4" and "Robocop 3", while it's a well known fact that those were never made.

Nah, they loved it because the audience wasn't casual.

It's casual now.
