Square Enix wants ten more years of Deus Ex

Ten years is an awful lot of time for even the best videogames, much less the mediocre ones. But, Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada is confident the company can keep Deus Ex: Human Revolution alive and kicking for about that long.

“We have dozens of IPs, some of which we wish to build into franchises,” Wada revealed to MCV. “Deus Ex 3 is something we’re trying to revive. We want to keep on producing profit from that IP for the next ten years.”

And hey, if all else fails, they’ve always got Final Fantasy to fall back on. After all, they “would like Final Fantasy to continue as long as there are the customers who support Final Fantasy.” Forever, then?
