Deus Ex: Human Revolution
So Deus Ex: The Fall is a Mobile Game, Dammit

We've talked this one up a bit, so we might as well follow it through to its natural conclusion now. Square Enix and Eidos Montreal have officially unveiled Deus Ex: The Fall, and it's a mobile game for iOS, tablets and all that jazz.

In short, it's a disappointment for anyone hoping for a console sequel or a next-gen Deus Ex game. It's set within the same universe and is being positioned as a sequel of sorts to Human Revolution. Which ultimately begs the question, why isn't it coming to consoles?

Anyway, that's that. Deus Ex: The Fall is coming to mobile devices this summer. You can watch the trailer through your tears of disappointment below. Here's a sample YouTube comment that sums up our feelings perfectly: "WTF IS THIS!? I WANT A NORMAL 3xAAA DEUS EX.... omg"

We want a console Deus Ex, not some mobile game I'm bored with within 5 minutes.

I hope they're making a new game for the new console generation. Really loved HR, was one of my favorite games on this generation consoles.

It seems this "next gen" everyone is talking about isn't what we thought it would be after all... I couldn't care less about all this "phablet" garbage.

I'm not against mobile games, but why the hell can't we just get a retail Deus Ex?

The sad thing is, I liked Human Revolution so much, I'd probably get this on my tablet. Unfortunately it doesn't appear to be coming to my tablet. Oh well, the wait for the next console released installment continues.

it would have been impossible to have a sequel to deus ex right now. Eidos montreal isn't a big studio and they're working on thief, which had a really problematic development in all these months. I'd rather have them focus full time on thief and making it great than having 2 imperfect games.

I think this looks pretty good! I'd obviously prefer a sequel, but it's not Eidos are spitting in anyone's face. Also, why would they announce a full-fledged sequel a week before E3?

Mobile gaming sucks, with the exception of simple puzzle games, no game is fun on any mobile device, they all come across as sub-par versions of games with compromises to the actual gaming. This announcement is a let down. I was hoping for a new console game, not another compromised version of a cool title.

I could NEVER find immersion in a game played on a mobile device. They are like video-game-games. Hard to take mobile games seriously.

Square Enix and Eidos Montreal, you all really broke all of our hearts now. :(:(

We want Deus Ex returns on console. God damned HR were brilliant in 2011. Why not bring next one into console? :(

Well good luck to Square Enix. They really struggle with business in early of year with losing money. I can see Deus Ex on mobile failed to met sales. :/

I got mobile and iPAD but I not want to play games on them cos it is bored since small screen is not my type of gaming on this screen like handhelds. I am more HDTV with consoles. :)

I very very disappointed with Square Enix and Eidos Montreal. But I do look forward Thief 4 it is their next console game out next year but I think mobile game for Deus Ex is silly idea. Deus Ex should be consoles and PC only. It is my opinion Deus Ex series just consoles and PC because from what it is should. :)

I would play this in a second on XBLA/PSN. It looked really cool to me but not "Shell out a shit-ton for an iPad" good. Although I guess I could get the screen on my iPhone 3GS fixed. But that's just a horrible little thing then.

Nope. Arcade or bust. And then a proper sequel please.

I gave mobile a try with Lunar and one of the Final Fantasies that was mobile only and some the Zedonia titles that are "Free 2 Play". Just don't like the interface enough really.

That's a depressing future -_-

I want to know who they ask to see if people want these. Because surely if they are asking 'gamers' then pretty much all of them would want a console sequel over a tablet game...

I guess this is the future. I don't like it.

When will game developers and publishers realise that mobile gaming is NOT the future (and never WILL be) of hardcore gaming. Stick to Bejeweled and crappy Facebook games, and stop alienating the hardcore gaming community.

@48 er...firstly, they are announcing all the Xbox One stuff at E3....

Secondly, what the feck does that have to do with an announcement trailer for a game that has nothing to do with Microsoft and isn't being released on a Microsoft system???

Did you even watch the video???

I can't express in any words in any human language how disappointed I am by this. Deus Ex: Human Revolution was one of the best 360 games I ever played ever. Maybe Square is afraid to release another console based Eidos at the moment, since they considered the others failures. Which is ironic, when you look at how shitty the FF series has become.
