The microtransactions is the least important reason to wait for a sale - they have no impact on the game what-so-ever, you should ignore them and that will actually only improve your experience.

Well I got MD from the Humble Monthly and... ehm... I don't really like this game. I really have to push myself to even start it up and playing it I decisively want to play something else instead, I'm just not having any fun playing what-so-ever.
I'll probably just drop playing it entirely even though I've only seen half of Prague... Going through the metro and now having to do another even LARGER section does not entice me in the slightest :/

Honestly Hashi, there’s still reasonable hope for Deus Ex. ^^

For a start, the Cyberpunk genre is trendy again:

Warren Spector said last year that he’d love to work on a new Deus Ex game. Right now the guy is working on a reboot of the first System Shock, if that's not cyberpunkish then I don't know what it is! \o/:

Warren Spector would make another Deus Ex in a heartbeat – “I screamed in frustration throughout much of Human Revolution” (vg247)

System Shock Reboot (expected release Q1 2020)

Second there are quite a few Cyberpunk games in developement right now:

- CD Project, the developers behind the Witcher games, are working on Cyberpunk 2077. Even though the game is cyberpunk it seems much more action-oriented and mature-rated (à la Witcher) than the Deus Ex games,

Rain of Reflections: by Lionbite Games (Swedish developers): turn-based,

The Sigma Theory: from Mi-Clos Studio (Frenchies): Strategy spy-game, release date: April 2019,

Synstasis: from Transhumanoid Productions ^^, Strategy,

Living Dark: by RocketWerkz Studios, from New Zealand. This Studio was created by Dean Hall, the guy who worked on the mod "DayZ" which later became a full-fledged game. Living Dark is an upcoming game that is quite hard to classify right now.

Observer: by Bloober Team SA, cyberpunk horror game, already released,

So when I read somewhere -can’t find the link anymore apology- that we won’t see a new Deus Ex up until another 10 years !?! This statement seems so out there. Maybe I’m too optimistic but again I think there’s some sizeable hope for the Deus Ex franchise in the near future.

On a final note let me add:

Now granted being topical is one thing, but does the Cyberpunk genre (games, movies,…) sell well these days? Apparently not enough:

Cyberpunk is getting its biggest push since the late ‘90s, but why don’t audiences seem to care? (gamesradar, Marsh 2018)

That was super interesting, thanks for the links! I thought he was completely done with the series, but actually saying he would love to do another one gives some hope. Well at least if Square Enix is willing to actually sell the IP...
