Eidos Montreal appear to be hiring for Deus Ex 416 May 2012
Clues are aligning online which all point towards Eidos Montreal hiring for Deus Ex 4. A linkedin post made by Peter Leonard (from ‘Games Industry Recruitment Specialists’ Amiqus), uncovered by superannuation, is seeking employees for roles in “a major Canadian company” based in Quebec.
The post continues, “the project is based upon an existing IP that is a well known and respected action/adventure title, with elements of choice and stealth within the gameplay” and lists a number of corresponding job titles.
In itself, this doesn’t point to Deus Ex 4. However, the job titles match those listed by Eidos Montreal under ‘unannounced projects’.
Putting these bits and pieces of information together, Deus Ex 4 is the most likely candidate.
It seems the title is heading for the ‘next generation’ consoles, as Leonard’s linkedin post also notes that the project will “take advantage of the new platforms coming in the next two years”.
