Spector tried to obtain Deus Ex, planned a successor

Famed designer Warren Spector wasn’t done with Deus Ex after he and his studio finished the follow-up Invisible War. In a recent interview with Variety, Spector said that he tried to acquire the rights to the IP from Eidos, but before that, he had plans for a game in the vein of Deus Ex ready to go and needing a publisher.

“There were and still are Deus Ex stories I would like to tell,” said Spector. “That story is not done for me. [For the sci-fi game] I sort of filed the serial numbers off.

“Deus Ex was very much a game of the millennium,” he continued.

It makes you feel fuzzy, right? Alas, it doesn’t seem likely that Spector will snatch Deus Ex 3 from Eidos, We’re also willing to guess — just to throw it out there — that Spector is too busy now to mess with whatever he had cooking at Junction Point a few years prior. Epic Mickey is happening.
