Deus Ex: Human Defiance trademarked

Square Enix has filed a trademark for Deus Ex: Human Defiance, potentially a sequel to 2011's Human Revolution.

A newly filed trademark may be the first we hear of the next Deus Ex game. Square Enix filed for "Deus Ex: Human Defiance," which obviously bears a striking resemblance to 2011's Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The publisher has not officially announced a sequel.

The trademark application (via CVG), which was filed just yesterday, could be a red herring or otherwise meaningless, but the timing makes a fair bit of sense. Eidos Montreal (a Square subsidiary) is currently consulting on a CBS Films adaptation of Human Revolution. The trademark could refer to said adaptation, but we're placing our bets on yet another game.

      About time! I LOVED Human Revolution. If SE can impress me during development of the next game, it'll be on my shelf day of release.

      A Sequel to the Prequel that ignores the sequel of the original. I think I got it,
      HR->HD->DE->(IW never happens here)

        How does it ignore Invisible War?

        I thought people didn't like that because of the gameplay, not the story. I never finished it because I thought it was pretty bad. I mean to.

        Honestly, I actually hope they just remake Deus Ex and Invisible War. I know that's blasphemy (it's one of my favorite games too), but I'd buy the shit out of a remake (not a reboot).
