Square Enix trademarks Deus Ex: Human Defiance

OXM asks PR for comment, PR responds "I didn't ask for this"

So, "Defiance" then. A sequel, or some form of re-release for next gen consoles? The film Square Enix is making with CBS (thanks for the reminder, Bezza)? A Wii U game, perhaps? Let's hope not. Let's hope it's a sequel.

A few possibly relevant asides. One, Eidos Montreal apparently cut three entire city hubs from Deus Ex: Human Revolution. According to level designer Frank Lapikas, "Montreal was supposed to be one. Upper Heng Sha was actually built, but it was never finished. At the beginning of the project we even planned to go to India. But as we constructed the city hubs, and understood the amount of work it took, we had to pare it down."


Two, Eidos Montreal is working on Thief 4 and, in the words of studio founder Stephane D'Astous, doesn't "want to be seen as a one trick pony". Make of that what you will.

Thanks to NeoGAF for the spot.
