New Deus Ex Installment On The Horizon?
In a surprising out of the blue moment, Square Enix has has gone ahead and trademarked the name "Deus Ex: Human Defiance" for an as of yet unconfirmed project. It is as of yet unknown if this is to do with the upcoming film based upon the successful franchise or is to be a sequel to Human Revolution.
The actual trademark itself can be found on TMView where it has been filed and a large number of details in relation to the trademark itself. Unfortunately besides this snippet of information we have little to go on so it's now going to be a case of waiting and seeing what comes next. Perhaps we will get lucky and someone has decided to make a miniseries about the already expansive cyberpunk universe.
However, it does seem likely that this would be a title for the film due to the recent information released drawing so much attention. With Sinister director Scott Derrickson and writer C. Robert Cargill having recently announced that they are taking inspiration from a number of successful sources such as Looper and Inception. For those interested in information on the film, more can be found in an interview on Crave Online.
Whatever the case it at least shows that there is more stuff in the pipeline for fans of the franchise.
