I wonder what Edios will do with DX3?

Same though is crossing my mind, maybe they'll give it to crystal dynamics to do it...

Even if DX:IW was badly received (relative to DX1, certainly), Deus Ex is still a widely recognised name, so I'd be surprised if Eidos locks it away for all eternity. DX won 35 GOTY awards and a BAFTA, so it doesn't matter how the sequel did; they surely have to make a third.
The questions are, who will make it and what kind of game will it be?

I'd agree that Crystal Dynamics seems a likely candidate for the developer. As for the story: I don't see how they can easily continue from any of the endings of DX:IW, at least not if they want to have a starting point where no one feels they made the "wrong" choice. Perhaps a story set in the Deus Ex universe that takes place after the collapse and prior to DX:IW?

starting point where no one feels they made the "wrong" choice.
If I were them then I would make that every ending was a wrong choice meaning no one won in that battle. Every one destroyed each other in the process. Some more then others, only few left like illuminati (being a stronger group, but on the brink of collapse however.) A somewhat continuation of Invisible War, factionís struggle for power, maybe new ones were born... It can be set like 3 to 5 years after Invisible War, right after Clan Wars ironically if you know what I mean. Were Clans are Illuminati, Templar, JC's Group and so on... What you guys think?

I think you're onto something here. Maybe the ending movies are simply the propaganda films put out by the group you side with and not actual history.

Well if Snowblind is good, then I can see letting CD make DX3.
