Activision and Treyarch are gearing up for the worldwide reveal of Call of Duty: Black Ops III this Sunday. To whet the appetites of fans, they released a live action teaser trailer for the game.
In the next 50 years, technological advancements will lead us into a world where only those who risk going too far, will find out how far we can actually go.”
The trailer suggests that Black Ops III will tackle themes similar to those found in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Interestingly enough, this similarity has not gone unnoticed by Edios Montreal, the creators of Deus Ex: Human Revolution and the upcoming Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
Jonathan J-B, the Executive Art Director for Mankind Divided, and Elias Toufexis, the voice of Adam Jensen, also used this opportunity to poke a little fun at the teaser.
Hey @Treyarch, Adam Jensen says welcome on the bandwagon! The liquor bar is at the back ;)— Jonathan J-B (@Jonatchoo) April 23, 2015
We lied guyz. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided actually takes place on the Eastern Front during World War 2. We felt inspired— Jonathan J-B (@Jonatchoo) April 23, 2015

Similarities aside, it will be interesting to see Treyarch's take on the topic of humans exceeding their physical limitations via advanced technology and the dangers thereof.
