Square Enix files trademark for ‘Deus Ex: Human Defiance’

Deus Ex: Human Defiance Trademark Filing

By on February 28, 2013 at 8:55 am

In delightful news, a trademark filing for something called Deus Ex: Human Defiance has been discovered, filed by none other then Square Enix themselves.

The filing is so broad as to offer no suggestion of what it could possibly actually be: it could be for anything from a game, to a novel, to a feature film.

We do know that there is of course a feature film in the works, so this could even be a tie-in game.

We’ll keep you posted as and when we learn more.

I never asked for this.


More Square-Enix Deus Ex can’t be a bad thing.
As long as it isn’t a movie tie-in.


Hopefully its the next installment in the game series.

Would be nice to have Deus Ex 4 running on Unreal engine 4 which seems fitting since the original Deus Ex was was running Unreal engine 1.


I never asked for this either, but I hoped, oh god how I hoped.


Another game? Hmm.

If they scrap the ‘xp for takedowns’ mechanic and instead go back to it’s roots of rewarding me for exploration, discovering secrets, finding alternate solutions, gathering information – via dialogue/hacking/whatever…

..And also if they give me back my trusty baton/dragoon tooth sword and do away with the horrible “time stopping/invulnerability” canned takedowns.. then I’ll be quite happy indeed. At least they learned their lesson of Boss fights with the Missing Link.


I’m OK with anything if it has Elias Toufexis.


I wouldn’t read too much into trademark categories. They’re all broad. You literally can’t pick a specific one.


Drop the boss fights. Please drop the boss fights. We don’t need them. (that is if there’s another DX on the horizon that is)



The devs did openly acknowledge that the boss fights were a poor decision, I doubt we’ll see them again.

Same. They really put their heart and soul into human revolution, wasn’t as good as the first…but it did a damn good job, and i was a brilliant game.

They need to dedicate themselves as much as they did for human revolution, so much potential if this is a new deus ex game! PLEASEEEE BE!!
