So Square enix actually fired IO interactive back in 2016 after Hitman release, ruined Deus Ex in favor of avengers and marvel money, killed sleeping dogs series as shut down thier developers etc. yet after saperate from square enix IO got Hitman IP and still better than ever. take a look at this
On other hand Square enix avengers disappoint everyone and they lost money
and This is the series they killed Deus Ex for. forcing Eidos to work on Avengers with crystal dynamic and turn into Loot RPG crap and they failed. as a result avengers turned out to be biggest failure of 2020 along with Cyberpunk.
IO on other hand finally deliver masterpiece in a shape of Hitman 3 and now are working on James Bond game which I believe will be first truly great James bond game and could be IO next masterpiece.
So my friend, are square enix will be angry if they don't separate IO interactive and killed Deus Ex? this is how table turn. independent studio survive and AAAA company fall.
what do you think? lets discuss my friends.
