‘Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’ Could Be The Title Of The Next Game
Apparently I was in a cave back in October 2013 when Square Enix and Deus Ex developer Eidos Montreal confirmed that a new title in the franchise was in development for next-gen consoles and PC. Or I’ve just forgotten that particular announcement. The news today, however, suggests that the mysterious game might have just gotten itself a name.
Square Enix has filed a trademark for the title Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

I don’t know about you, but I think that’s a pretty cool name and I’d totally go for it as a follow-up or sideways spin-off or whatever to Human Revolution. It seems fitting. Of course, it’s just a trademark and therefore nothing is actually confirmed.
Square Enix secured the trademark for the title in the UK, having filed it on March 27, and that’s according to a listing on the OHIM website.
In October 2013, when Studio head David Anfossi hinted at the next Deus Ex game, it was confirmed that the core team behind Human Revolution is working on the project. So I guess I was under a rock then. Other than that, we’ve only gotten a piece of early concept art, which was said to illustrate the “trans-humanism segregation” which will act as the backdrop for the sequel.
You can see the concept art down below.
“It represents a ‘ghetto-city’ voluntarily built in order to separate the classes,” Anfossi previously said.
“The people in this segregated class have reshaped their environment, nostalgic for their ideal of Cyber Renaissance. This dark and dystopian vision sets the tone for things to come in Deus Ex.”
We’ll find out soon enough if the trademark turns out to be the official title, and we’ll hopefully see this game at E3 this year.
