Alleged industry insiders even went as far as to say that the franchise wouldn't see a sequel. However, in an interview between GamesIndustry and Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda, new details were revealed. Matsuda said the following when discussing the Deus Ex franchise.

We have never said anything about discontinuing that title but for some reason that's the rumor out on the market… What I can say is Eidos Montreal has always developed Deus Ex, and the issue is we do not have limitless resources. We have several big titles that we work with and that's partly a factor in what our lineup looks like. Of course, it would be ideal if we could work on all of them all of the time, but the fact of the matter is some titles have to wait their turn. The reason there isn't a Deus Ex right now is just a product of our development lineup because there are other titles we are working on.

Matsuda finished by saying that Deus Ex was a very important franchise and discussions are already taking place regarding what the company wants to do with the next game. This is great news for fans of the franchise and should put contrary rumors to rest.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is an outstanding stealth-action experience despite slightly clunky controls and missteps in the plot. If you want to give the game a shot, it can frequently be found at a discount from its $59.99 price tag at Amazon, Microsoft, and other retailers.
