Deus Ex Studio Lends Credence to Rumour of Work on Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy

Early last year, a report emerged that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided developer, Eidos Montreal, was working on a Guardians of the Galaxy project, and recent comments from key team members have lent support to those rumours.

Speaking to PCGamesN, studio boss David Anfossi mentioned that the team is currently at work on three games: Shadow of the Tomb Raider, The Avengers Project (in collaboration with Crystal Dynamics), and another, unannounced project. While said project could be either a new Thief or Deus Ex, Anfossi quashed the supposition of either. Of Thief, he said “for the moment there [are] no plans around that franchise.” Meanwhile,  although Deus Ex is “the brand of the studio,” Anfossi said that the team “cannot do everything,” suggesting that this third game is not a return to that bleak cyberpunk future.

Furthermore, in another interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Anfossi strongly implied that the project is not a new IP in a comment that he “would definitely like, at some point, to try and create a new universe.”

In conjunction with each other, these statements only rule out several options, and it could just as easily be a reboot of Crystal Dynamics’s dormant Legacy of Kain franchise as Guardians of the Galaxy. However, given that Square Enix has signed a multi-year, multi-game partnership with Marvel for The Avengers, the publisher would be sensible to have more than one of its flagship studios leading such a project, particularly considering Eidos Montreal’s long history of collaboration with Crystal Dynamics. In addition to The Avengers Project, the team has previously contributed to the Tomb Raider reboot and Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Digimon Survive

The opening movie for Bandai Namco’s survival strategy game, Digimon Survive, has been released.

The opening was first shown exclusively at the “Future of Digimon” panel at Anime Expo 2019 back on July 6. The opening shows an earthquake that has hit Kanobe City, as well as some ominous red eyes (presumably Digimon) surrounding an old man in a forest. Near the end, the main character, Takuma, sees a mysterious silhouette of a girl, and the opening finishes with her singing.

Digimon Survive follows Takuma and his companion, Agumon, as they make decisions to stay alive and escape a bizarre dimension.

Digimon Survive will release on PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One in 2020.
