Deus Ex: Human Revolution Gets Trademark
We haven't heard from Deus Ex in some time, but now that Square-Enix has acquired Eidos, maybe they're putting the pedal to the metal for Deus Ex 3.
Or perhaps the new installment will be called "Deus Ex: Human Revolution," a title that has just been trademarked by Square-Enix in Europe. We're assuming this is the new project; S-E is producing the cinematics for the game and will publish it as well, and hopefully, more information will come down the pike soon. Originally, Deus Ex 3 was only announced for the PC but we're hoping it will be confirmed for consoles as well; the franchise did arrive on the Xbox and PS2 last generation in the form of Deus Ex: The Conspiracy and Deus Ex: Invisible War. This is a series that really needs to make its impact felt in this generation, and most who enjoy the blend of FPS and RPG mechanics will certainly agree. Actually, if you've never played any Deus Ex, you might compare it to Bioshock; both games have the depth and accomplished storylines of a role-playing adventure with the fluid, seamless first-person controls of a shooter. We can always use more titles like these, right?
Although we're not quite as excited about Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, a new Deus Ex from Eidos/Square-Enix would certainly pique our interest.
