Possible information on Deus Ex Universe has appeared, thanks to a casting call for actors.

According to the listing posted by NYC Castings and found by Superannuation, the actor being sought will play the part of Hiroshi Saito, a male of Asian decent in his late 20s to mid 30s whose current assignment is to infiltrate the Augmented Rights Coalition.

Here’s the description:

Should appear Japanese, early 30s, 5’8″ to 6′. Should be athletic/built, in the 185lbs category. All submitted talent should fall within these specs. Any knowledge of stage combat & martial arts a plus. Hiroshi Saito is an Illuminati Shadow Agent. His current assignment is to infiltrate the Augmented Rights Coalition, to replace its leader and to discredit its movement by committing a series of attacks in their names. He is fierce, unsympathetic, cunning, and arrogant. Disciplined, unemotional, intelligent, gritty. He has a mild Japanese accent, able to range from professional with his superiors, militant when undercover, and smirky when talking to enemies. Previous motion capture experience is a bonus.

The casting page makes no mention of Deus Ex, but considering its a casting call for a Montreal-based gaming project which also makes mention of the Illuminati and augmentation – well two and two equals four and other math analogies.

Eidos Montreal has said its next Deus Ex title is part of the studio’s plan to expand the franchise on a regular basis and to “deliver a deep conspiracy that will span several connected Deus Ex games.”

Deus Ex: Universe will include PC and next-gen consoles and additional Deus Ex games and experiences will be made available on tablets and smartphones as well as through books, graphic novels, etc.
