Square Enix doing Deus Ex 3 cinematics

Wants to help out on Thief 4 too.

Square Enix will muck in and help on Deus Ex 3's cinematics, according to Eidos Montreal's Stephane D'Astous.

"The cinematics - by which I mean any CGI pre-rendered cinematics - are going to be done in Tokyo by Square Enix, and that's going to be amazing," D'Astous told Edge.

Apparently one day after Square Enix acquired Eidos, D'Astous woke up and remembered his new corporate overlords were pretty good at the old CG, and decided to get them involved.

"The people in Tokyo are just so glad to work on it. This is the first project for them that's a non-Final Fantasy title - they even want to work on Thief 4 too, so everyone is really excited."

Not a lot is known about Deus Ex 3, but what there is you can find on our gamepage, including a debut teaser trailer, which, given the above, is presumably no longer canon.
