Thief, Deus Ex Developer Eidos Has Reportedly Canceled a Third Project

Posted on October 31, 2013 AT 01:34pm

Eidos Montreal, the studio behind Deus Ex: Human Revolution and the upcoming Thief reboot apparently had another title int he works that has now been canceled, Kotaku reports.

According to Kotaku’s sources, the canceled project is not the recently announced next-gen Deus Ex. Instead, two different “developer sources” they cite say it was something related to their parent company, Eidos—reportedly a new IP, though.

Earlier this week, Square Enix’s Motomu Toriyama, director on Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, and Yuji Abe, game design director for Lightning Returns, mentioned how an Eidos-developed Final Fantasy game isn’t out of the question, and is in fact something being discussed internally at Square Enix. Considering the proximity of these reports, however, and that the next installment of Final Fantasy after XV is a long, long ways away, it’s beyond unlikely that whatever Eidos was developing had anything to do with the Final Fantasy franchise.
