When the new Square Enix Avengers Project was announced last week and it was revealed that Eidos Montreal and Crystal Dynamics were both working on it, a big question was asked of how these developers mainline series, namely Deus Ex and Tomb Raider, would be affected.

Well, we supposedly have the answer for one of those, and it isn't good. Eurogamer are reporting that Square Enix have put the franchise "on hiatus", meaning we shouldn't expect much from the franchise for a while. This is supposedly in part allow the company to work on the announced Marvel game, but also underwhelming sales of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. 

This is a total shame since Mankind Divided was actually a great game that reviewed well. That being said, I'd be shocked if Tomb Raider was also halted for Marvel production in the same way. That series appears to be alive and kicking… I hope…
