A job posted to developer Eidos Montreal’s website suggests that the next game in the Deus Ex series might be getting a multiplayer mode.
The developer is looking for an Online Programmer to work on Deus Ex: Universe, a project for the new consoles and PC announced in October 2013 that spans multiple games. The Online Programmer’s duties will include implementing online game features and building a suite of tools for running a live game.
Eidos says that experience in working on multiplayer games would be an asset, as is good knowledge of the Xbox Live, PSN, and Steam APIs.
Last week, Square Enix filed a trademark for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, but it’s unclear whether it’s related to the game currently in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, or another mobile title such as last year's Deus Ex: The Fall.
