Deus Ex: Human Defiance trademarked by Square Enix

It seems Square Enix has trademarked a new Deus Ex game.

This looks to be a sequel to Deus Ex: Human Revolution since it doesn’t seem to be a mainline entry in the series. If real, the game could be announced at E3 this year.

The trademark was filed on 26, Feb 2013 by Square Enix.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution was released in 2011 and went on to become a critically acclaimed game. It has also shipped 2 million copies showing that there’s a lot of interest in the series. It’s not surprising that Square Enix is planning to make a new game, but considering they have filed the trademark recently, this game could be released in 2014. Or maybe not.

Check out the screengrab below. The trademark can be found by searching this website.

The game could be a cross gen title too–releasing on both current and new platforms. Whatever it is, expect an announcement soon.
