Today gaming website AllGamesBeta, discovered a casting call that sounds like it may be related to Deus Ex: Universe. NYCastings lists the audition in New York City but with the actual shoot taking place in Montreal, the home of Eidos Montreal, the developer for Human Revolution.
The listing is for a Hiroshi Saito, a male Asian between the ages of 28 - 35.
"Should appear Japanese, early 30s, 5'8" to 6'. Should be athletic/built, in the 185lbs category," the listing states. "All submitted talent should fall within these specs. Any knowledge of stage combat & martial arts a plus."
"Hiroshi Saito is an Illuminati Shadow Agent. His current assignment is to infiltrate the Augmented Rights Coalition, to replace its leader and to discredit its movement by committing a series of attacks in their names. He is fierce, unsympathetic, cunning, and arrogant. Disciplined, unemotional, intelligent, gritty. He has a mild Japanese accent, able to range from professional with his superiors, militant when undercover, and smirky when talking to enemies. Previous motion capture experience is a bonus."
Sounds a lot like a character from the Deus Ex universe, does it not?
Square Enix recently announced Deus Ex: Universe which is meant to be a "ongoing, expanding and connected game world built across a generation of core games." If so, this could be one of the companies biggest projects in recent memory.
