Eidos Montreal teases Deus Ex: The Fall reveal
Eidos Montreal, fueling an aura of mystery that has left the gaming community baffled, tweeted today a teaser for Deus Ex: The Fall, reading "Where will YOU take The Fall?" and accompanied by a Vine video snippet. When viewed, a voice asks "Are we ready to begin?" in the background.
In the video game industry, hype is usually the result of some snippet of gameplay, or a few transfixing words from a developer. This is not the case with Deus Ex: The Fall, as aside from a few domains registered by Square Enix and the developer's tweet today, absolutely nothing is known about the project. There has been some speculation that this mysterious title is merely another round of downloadable content for Deus Ex: Human Revolution, but considering the last round of DLC for the game was released in October 2011, it's an unlikely scenario.
The tweet does, however, foreshadow the end of Eidos' secret project, reading "05/06/13" under the header of Deus Ex: The Fall. While nothing can be for certain, we can infer that more information concerning this title will be unveiled in the next couple of days on June 5, and even more information will likely be revealed at this year's E3.
What do you think about Deus Ex: The Fall? Is this just a late round of DLC meant to revive interest in Human Revolution, or is Eidos attempting to garner hype for an ambiguous, standalone sequel?
