Harvey Smith leaves Midway Austin

Harvey SmithRemember when Harvey Smith spoke his mind about his latest game, Blacksite: Area 51? Since then, it appears Smith has parted ways with Midway Austin. According to a reply from a Midway employee, it was a mutual parting of ways. (Of course, conspiracy theorists will likely look at that whole fiasco and conclude the mutual parting was more Midway than Smith.)

Before blowing up about Blacksite: Area 51 and claiming all games need to have complex political statements, Smith was the lead designer on Deus Ex and project lead on Deus Ex: Invisible War. Eidos has recently confirmed the development of Deus Ex 3, but as of now there’s no indication that Smith will be involved. If you’re a fan of Deus Ex, you’re probably hoping that remains the case.
