I come bearing sad news fellow Deus Ex lovers. Last week we got a bit carried away following the news that Square Enix was submitting an application to trademark Deus Ex: Defiance.
We thought this would be the next game in the series but I’m afraid we were wrong; it’s just the name of the movie adaptation.
The URL in question, DeusExHumanDefianceFilm.com, is registered to CBS Films. I still have an unshakable faith that we WILL get another Deus Ex before long, but I must admit this was a pretty sucky let-down.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution was released back in August of 2011. A prequel to the legendary Deus Ex series of the past, DE:HR garnered both critical and commercial acclaim upon its release. This is the only news we’ve had about the future of the franchise however, and it really is disappointing.
