Deus Ex: Human Defiance Is A Movie, Not A Game
Earlier this week, we reported that a trademark was registered for something called “Deus Ex: Human Defiance”. Although information was scarce, it was presumed that the name referred to a possible sequel to Deus Ex: Human Revolution, as it was the most likely case. We posited that the title could refer to the upcoming Deus Ex movie.
It would appear that we were on the right course with the latter speculation. According to gaming industry sleuth superannuation, Deus Ex: Human Defiance refers to the new movie, which is currently being directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose) who is also co-writing the script with C. Robert Cargill. He discovered the registrations for the following domains: DeusExhumanDefianceFilm.com and
DeuSex-HumanDefiance.com, both of which were registered under CBS Films Inc.
Square Enix has yet to make any formal statements about the development, but we wouldn’t put it past the studio to make a proper announcement sometime soon.
