A few days ago, it was reported that Deus Ex developer Eidos Montreal would be taking a break from the series. The studio currently has its hands full assisting Crystal Dynamics on The Avengers Project and at the same time, developing a game based on the Guardians of the Galaxy property on their own. Both of which are products of the recently announced Marvel-Square Enix partnership.
Furthermore, the studio is also working on the next Tomb Raider game, a project leaked last November. News of the series hiatus no doubt bummed out fans, especially after the latest installment in the series, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, left a number of plot points unsolved. The underwhelming commercial numbers produced by Mankind Divided, despite critical acclaim, probably made the hiatus decision easier for Eidos Montreal.
The good news is, Steam has put (almost) the entire series on a massive sale, perhaps in a move to help ease the pain for fans of the series. If you still haven't played Mankind Divided, you can now get it for a measly $18, the cheapest the game has been offered on the digital distribution giant, with the Season Pass available for just $20.
But don't start drooling yet - there's an even better offer available. Way, way better. You can opt for The Deus Ex Collection bundle instead, which contains Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition, Deus Ex: Invisible War, Deus Ex: The Fall, Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut, and Mankind Divided and its Season Pass. This bundle can be had for only $34.32. Now, you can start drooling.
The only game missing from the bundle is the mobile-only Deus Ex Go, one-third of Square Enix's "Go" games on mobile (Hitman Go and Lara Croft Go being the other two). But if you don't really play on smartphones and tablets, this shouldn't be a problem. Pounce on the promo now before it ends on Monday, February 6.
The Deus Ex series has been around for almost two decades now, with the first game, Deus Ex, released back in 2000. Ion Storm developed the first two games before turning the franchise over to Eidos Montreal.
