It looks like Eidos and Square Enix will be bringing a brand new Deus Ex title to E3 next week.
The extremely brief teaser trailer lacks just about every conceivable piece of pertinent information about Deus Ex: The Fall, save for the game's title. That's not entirely true, we suppose. There is a quick snippet of audio as well, asking, "Are you ready to begin?"
Eidos also plants a date of June 5 in there at the end, which we gather means the game will be formally announced tomorrow. There's little indication as to whether this will be a straight sequel to Deus Ex: Human Revolution, or a new storyline entirely. Eidos Montreal did drop some hints on its Twitter, when a few days ago it asked, "Who is Ben Saxon?"
Who is Ben Saxon? #DeusEx

Ben Saxon was the protagonist of the Deus Ex: Icarus Effect novel, which served as a prelude to Human Revolution. Could Ben Saxon be the star of The Fall? It's entirely possible, but until Eidos becomes a bit more forthcoming, nothing is certain.
