Is Deus Ex: Mankind Divided the Anticipated Next-Gen Entry?
In the opinion of many critics and avid gamers, Deus Ex: Human Revolution was one of the top games of the previous generation.
Can't wait to see a next-gen iteration, can you?
Well, nothing is official just yet, but we may have stumbled upon the name of the next installment in the award-winning franchise. As noticed by a NeoGAF forumite, Square Enix has registered a trademark for a product called "Deus Ex: Mankind Divided."
This was registered in Europe and entered the OHIM's database just recently, on March 27. Developer Eidos Montreal revealed that they were working on a next-gen entry last year, but they haven't formally announced a title, estimated date, or targeted platforms. Chances are, it'll be coming to all major platforms, and we're hoping it'll be ready sooner rather than later.
Just don't farm out the boss fights this time
Human Revolution really was great, but the boss encounters were lacking. This is because, for some bizarre reason, this portion of the game wasn't handled by the main development team. They outsourced the boss fights, which is why they didn't gel with the rest of the game. Those who wanted to play the game 100 percent stealthily were stymied by the deadly limitations of those boss fights, and many were not amused.
Provided they don't do this again, we should get another stellar experience.
