Not only will the Deus Ex series be releasing a new game next year, but also a new comic series thanks to Titan Comics.
According to IGN, Titan Comics has acquired the license to the Deus Ex franchise and plans to publish comics based on the dystopian video game series starting in 2016. The first story arc, which will span five issues, will be from writer Alex Irvine (Dark Sun, Daredevil Noir) and Assassin’s Creed cover artist Marco Turini.
“Eidos-Montréal have set a precedent for cyberpunk gaming and we’re delighted to be a part of their next exciting venture,” said Tom Williams, editor at Titan Comics. “The Deus Ex Universe is rich with political intrigue and social commentary and we can’t wait to further explore Adam Jensen’s journey through this dystopian landscape, as well as introducing readers to some of the characters of the anticipated new installment, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.”
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is scheduled for release on February 23rd, 2016 with the comic series by Titan set to arrive shortly after on March 2nd, 2016.
