“Some of the more hardcore fans early on have been scared, ‘oh my god, will it be a real Deus Ex game or not? What is it going to be?’” Jean-François Dugas told Gamespot.
“When we started to show the game and people started to play it they were really enthusiastic, they were really feeling that it was the next worthy sequel into the Deus Ex universe.
“When we were building it we were confident that we were making a Deus Ex game, that it would be a good one. But until you show it to outside people you’re never sure to [what] extent [you've succeeded].”
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is due on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in late August.
