Square Enix files trademark for new Deus Ex game

Deus Ex all conspiracy like

Square Enix has filed a trademark pointing towards a title that could be the new Deus Ex game. Here’s what I think will go down.

The name Squeenix filed for is “Deus Ex: Human Defiance,” so if this is indeed the next title in the franchise – which it probably is – it’ll go something like this:

“After the revolution of cybernetically augmented human beings for the betterment of mankind, society’s deepest fears realize. Instead of a technological marvel, the planet has fallen into poverty and turmoil. However, an underground organization called [insert name here] operates in secret to rebel against the corrupt powerhouse [insert company name here] controlling the world. Before mentioned secret rebel organisation inspires the masses to rise up against and overthrow before mentioned corrupt powerhouse.”

Enter Adam Jensen! As the washed-up, once great hero. He is recruited by this secret rebel organization and then you own shit with guns and awesome cybernetic stuff.

Here are some details on the trademark application discovered by NeoGAF:

“Nice classification: 9, 16, 41” Now I don’t know what “nice classification” is, but sure, I mean Deus Ex: Human Defiance sounds pretty nice to me. The numbers 9, 16, 41 refer to the following:

Nice class number:

Which can only mean that they’ll make a game, release an action figure and book as they did with Deus Ex: Human Revolution, have some kind of mobile app and make a short film or two.

This is my guess at least, because what else is out there? Make a movie? They’re already doing that… Oh and don’t forget! Deus Ex: Human Defiance will release on next-gen consoles.
