Spector Wanted Deus Ex. Eidos Say No. :(

Variety have been interviewing Warren Spector about the Wii-Epic Mickey game and amongst the information that's irrelevant to THE WORLD'S MIGHTIEST PC GAMING BLOG a couple of facts came to light. Specifically, some more details of the two games which Junction Point were working on before they were acquired. One was a fantasy game, but the other was basically Deus Ex with the serial numbers filed off because Eidos wouldn't sell the IP to him. “There were and still are ‘Deus Ex’ stories I would like to tell. That story is not done for me,” he says in the interview. Most crucially, the rights to the two games went to Disney with Junction point and aren't dead. In other words, we could still see Spector's Bioshock, if you follow my metaphor. As he said to me a few years ago, it's possible he'll only work on three more games before he retires. Epic Mickey, Not Deus Ex and incarnating a Fantasy World his wife and he have wanted to do for fifteen years would be a fine way to round off his ludography.
