There were many franchises that, during the eighth console generation, were in the absolute best shape of their lives, but at the same time, there were others that fared far worse. Franchises that have no shortage of fans, that have a certain history and legacy, and yet for some reason or the other, simply failed to replicate during the previous console generation. Here, we’re going to talk about those franchises.

DEUS EX

After nearly a decade of slumbering, Deus Ex returned in 2011 with the incredible Human Revolution, and it returned with such confidence that to many, it seemed like the franchise was going to stick around for a long, long time. Well, that didn’t turn out will. Five years later, we got Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, a game that succeeded on so many fronts- but one that ended up being a commercial disappointment. A campaign that ended ended to quickly and ill-advised marketing, among other things, came together to ensure less-than-stellar sales for the game, and since then, Deus Ex has sadly been back on the ice.
