Warren Spector Audio Interview
9:06 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The internet radio station XGR recently spoke with Warren Spector, creator of the action/RPG Deus Ex. The entire Q&A is now available for download, in four MP3-format sections. Some very interesting stuff is discussed, including Deus Ex, Spector's background and even a a few hints about the upcoming sequels-in-progress Deus Ex 2 and Thief 3.

As has been announced before, both titles will be using Epic's Unreal engine (which was also used in the original DE). Spector explains they chose the engine partly because of their familiarity with the technology, and also because of its impressive editing tools for designers. While he's unable to reveal much about the gameplay yet for either game, we're sure both will be top-notch. Any game that follows Deus Ex will have a lot to live up to, that is for certain.

We're also excited because the fact that Ion Storm is using the Unreal engine once again means the Mac port for one or both titles is very much more likely than it would have been if they had selected an engine which hasn't been ported to the Mac before. While neither game has been announced for the Mac yet, you can be sure we'll keep you posted on any new info that does become available; both games are al least a year away, if not more.
