Square Enix Supplying Cinematics For 'Deus Ex 3'

Deus Ex 3

Even without Warren Spector, "Deus Ex" has still manged to spawn a second sequel, and now that Eidos Interactive is owned by Square Enix, they've decided to team up for CGI cinematics in "Deus Ex 3." Though no one knows quite what the clips will look like, the team-up marks a milestone Eidos.

"'Deus Ex 3' is going to be the first project which will be a concrete product of joint effort between Square Enix and Eidos," Eidos Montreal studio manager Stephane D'Astous told Edge. "The cinematics — by which I mean any CGI pre-rendered cinematics — are going to be done in Tokyo by Square Enix, and that's going to be amazing."

Those scenes should be showing up, at least in part, in the game's trailers and introduction. Coming from the same folks who have proven themselves in the Final Fantasy series, they're going to face some big audience expectations. Everyone's excited from the sound of it, though, and Square Enix may already be looking ahead to their next Eidos collaboration.

"We already have some pre-visualisations," continued D'Astous. "The people in Tokyo are just so glad to work on it; this is the first project for them that's a non-Final Fantasy title— they even want to work on 'Thief 4' too, so everyone is really excited."
