Some legitimite-looking evidence has hit the Internet suggesting the development of Battlefield: Bad Company 3, Mirror’s Edge 2, Saints Row 4, and Deus Ex 4 is underway.
Bad Company 3 and Mirror’s Edge 2 have both been listed on various LinkedIn profiles.
Similarly, Saints Row 4 is mentioned on the LinkedIn resume of artist David Payne, which states he was the lead prop and weapon artist for the title.
According to the resume entry, Saints Row 4 is being developed for current-generation consoles.
In a post on LinkedIn that has since been removed, a “major Canadian company” advertised several vacancies for a “semi open-world action adventure title that responds to player choice and interaction.”
According to the listing, the game is based upon an existing IP – a “well known and respected action/adventure title, with elements of choice and stealth within the gameplay”.
Assuming the company is Eidos, and given that Thief 4 has already been confirmed as being in development, the game in question could certainly be Deus Ex 4.
