Game Trivia

  • Throughout the game, you can see the skyline of 2052 New York City, with one noticeable feature missing: the twin World Trade Center buildings. While their models exist in the game's code, they were removed due to memory limitations. Developers justified their removal, in terms of plot, by saying that terrorists had destroyed them prior to the game's storyline.

    This was all a year prior to the actual September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks which destroyed the World Trade Centers.

  • Warren Spector stated that half of the development team wanted to remove the pistol from Deus Ex because they thought it was useless compared to the other weapons. Warren Spector mentioned the pistol was design in the game to be under-powered compared to others because it forced the player to be very clever with it as players would use it to shoot at items like explosive barrels, taking the time to perform headshots and connecting it to other items from a safe distance to progress the game.
