According to the latest data revealed by Eidos, probably due to the acquisition by the Embracer Group, the sales of Deus Ex have been revealed.
The Deus Ex franchise has sold more than fourteen million copies overall . The figure was unveiled by Eidos and is evidently linked to the acquisition by the Embracer Group, announced this morning.
Of the total copies sold, twelve million or more were made from triple A chapters, while two million from mobile (paid) applications. Note that the infographic shows only the last chapters of the series, so Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the Director’s Cut edition of the same and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. No reference is made to the first two chapters, namely Warren Spector’s original Deus Ex and Deus Ex: Invisible War. The mobile titles mentioned are Deus Ex: The Fall and Deus Ex: Go.
It is interesting that the average ratings of Metacritic and the App Store also appear on the infographic, so as to underline the quality of the franchise, which is very high (slips aside).
Currently the series is frozen, with Square Enix no longer carrying it out after the disappointing sales of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, which was penalized by microtransactions considered by many to be too rapacious.
