While Eidos Montreal has had a secret Deus Ex project in the works, it's not a new game. The studio has teamed up with OverClocked ReMix and the composer of the original Deus Ex, Alexander Brandon, to craft eight remixes from the classic Deus Ex. Tracks will be released via the Deux Ex Facebook fan page over the course of the next few weeks, with the first track available today.
On why the original Deux Ex was remixed as opposed to Human Revolution
Alex was considered as were many other talented composers. But we really were looking to carve out our own niche – we wanted to do something original. Deus Ex was a great game but now we wanted to make our game in the series. When I heard Mike’s pitch I knew I wanted to work with him. I think it would have been safe and easy to go with Alex but I’ve never done things safe. Alex reached out to me early on to wish me well with the project and even said to do it my way and make it my own. He’s a classy individual and always spoke well about the work Mike and I were doing – I have a lot of respect for Alex.
