Adam Jensen will hack his way onto mobile devices this summer with Deus Ex: Go

There’s a new entry into the Deus Ex franchise, though it’s one unfortunately not coming to PC (at least not initially). Square Enix Montreal is developing Deus Ex: Go, a turn-based puzzle game in the same vein as Hitman: Go and Lara Croft: Go, for mobile phones and tablets. You can see a little of it above in the announcement trailer.

Hacking, combat, augmentations, and terrorist conspiracies will be translated into turn-based puzzle mechanics for DX:Go. It will also feature a puzzle-designer so players can create and share their own puzzles, though this utility will arrive sometime after Deus Ex: Go is launched. As far as a date, all we know about DX:Go is that it’s coming “this summer.”
 

We’re hopeful we’ll be able to play Deus Ex: Go on PC at some point in the future, but no plans to bring it to desktops have been announced. Hitman: Go and Lara Croft: Go both made it to Windows, though, and I have it on good authority (a guy I know) that they are enjoyable games.

An earlier version of this story stated that Lara Croft: Go had not been released on PC. It has, and the article has been updated to reflect that.

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
