Deus Ex 3 Won't Have Multiplayer

Eidos Montreal has declared that Deus Ex 3 won't have any multiplayer modes in an effort to remain faithful to the first game.
Speaking about the decision to drop multiplayer for Deus Ex 3, Game Director, Jean-Francois Dugas told IGN: "Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a single-player game only. Being the first project out of the new Eidos Montreal studio, and staying true to the Deus Ex legacy, the development team wanted to focus purely on the single-player experience to ensure we delivered on that front."
Dugas also expressed the importance of the first game's influence and legacy: "Our initial goal was to identify the core values of Deus Ex and bring them back for a new generation of gamers. The core values were established by Warren Spector and company, so by building on top of it, I think his heritage is quite present.
"Of course, the first game was released several years ago; we needed to bring fresh ideas to the table but never without respecting the essence of what makes a Deus Ex game what it is. In the end, it's going to be a mix of old and new."
And one of those old components is a lack of multiplayer, sadly. Dugas finished by promising that there'll be more info on the upcoming game at this year's E3.
