Deus Ex sequel cancelled, Embracer Group layoffs announced


Two years ago, Eidos Montreal became part of a company with all its licenses. We have been going through a tough month in the video game industry due to the thousands of people who have been laid off at various companies. Twitch, Riot Games, and more recently Microsoft are some of those that have had to say goodbye to a good part of their employee base. Unfortunately, the number has increased more on the part of Embracer Group.

As reported by the Bloomberg portal, the company has laid off an unknown number of workers as part of an initiative to reduce costs. At the moment, no details have been provided about this situation and the company itself has not offered any statement in this regard.

Apparently, Eidos Montreal was working on a new video game in the Deus Ex saga, although its development has been canceled completely as a result of this same decision made internally. The new installment, which had not even been officially revealed, was scheduled to enter the production phase throughout this year, but the people who have provided the information are not authorized to delve into the subject.

The last titles in the series that the company worked on have been Deus Ex: Human Revolution, published in 2011, and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, released in 2016. However, it is unknown if this new chapter was going to be a continuation with Adam Jensen as the protagonist or was going to introduce us to a completely different character. In any case, very bad news for all those who were looking forward to seeing a new chapter of the franchise.
