In related Deus Ex: Human Revolution news, Eidos Montreal have revealed in an interview with EDGE that they scrapped plans to feature an additional three more city hubs, including their own base of operations, Montreal. Lead gameplay designer Frank Lapikas:
We had planned for a lot more city hubs. Montreal was supposed to be one. Upper Heng Sha was actually built, but it was never finished. At the beginning of the project we even planned to go to India. But as we constructed the city hubs, and understood the amount of work it took, we had to pare it down.”
And from Art Director Jonathan Jacques-Belletete:
“There were definitely supposed to be some streets to Montreal. There were outdoor locations set in one of the most famous neighbourhoods of Montreal, called Plateau.
It’s got very specific architecture, called tri-plexes, with twirling exterior staircases made of this old metal. It’s very specific to Montreal, and we’d drawn concept art of how these streets would look in 20 or 30 years from now.
We even tried them in-game. Walking around them felt quite special – that architecture had never been in a game before, and never realised alongside a vision of 2027. It was really cool.”
