Good Old Games has announced that a new publisher will be coming to it. Although it is not yet officially revealed who this new publisher will actually be, GoG has provided us with some hints about it. According to its announcement, two game characters from that publisher are now a standard in their genres and will grace their catalog on this Thursday. And from what we have gathered so far, it seems that the new publisher could very well be EIDOS / Square Enix.
First hint is the header on GoG’s main page. This image looks very similar to a pixelated version of Thief’s boxart and could mean that Garrett is one of the two heroes. Not only that, but the title on that header says that this is the best ‘hidden hero’ . Put these two together and you get Thief (or Hitman, though Garrett is more of a hidden hero than Agent 47).
Moreover, at the original Deus Ex trailer (at 2:25) we get asked of ‘what kind of hero are we’. Ironically, GoG has used the same message in their announcement, so this hints to Deus Ex hitting Good Old Games.
Furthermore, Square Enix carries an impressive portfolio with some of our all-time favorite game heroes, like Garrett, JC Denton, Lara Croft, Cloud, Kain, Agent 47, and so on.
All will be unveiled in just a few days, but our guess is that the new publisher is Square Enix and the two games that will be released on Thursday will be Deus Ex and Thief.
