Deus Ex 3: Only Human?

By Alec Meer on February 9th, 2010 at 11:22 pm.

Thanks to a strange person who loves to go through patent filings, the world now knows that Square-Enix (newish overlords of what once was Eidos) have very recently trademarked a new Deus Ex title. You’ll find it beneath the cut… Oh, I’m not that cruel. It’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

LIKE EVOLUTION BUT WITH AN R IN FRONT SO IT’S ANOTHER WORD HAHA. God, did they get Kieron to come up with that one? It’s Not, notably, Deus Ex 3: Human Revolution, but most folk are presuming it will indeed be the full title of the game hitherto assumed to be called DX3. Given it’s a prequel/relaunch, it makes a certain amount of sense to ditch the numbers. How are we about that pun, though? I’m disappointed they didn’t go for Deus Ex: Survival Of The Funkiest instead. Or, could this be a separate game – perhaps a console-specific title so we faithful might be blessed with a true-blooded PC Deus Ex party? Wishful thinking, no doubt – but it’s good to hear even the faintest murmur from this long silent behemoth-in-waiting.

“Human Revolution.” Hum. It’s both growing on me and becoming even more awkward every time I say it.

    How about the witchcraft spin-off:

    Dais Hex: Human Resurrection

    It could be a cult classic!

  2. Vadermath says:

    We could have an adult classic on our hands!

    Deu Sex: Human Ass-erection

  3. Stense says:

    Damn, I was hoping they’d go for Deus Ex: Brain Babies of Futures past. Complete with soundtrack from Krafwerk.

    In related news, Eidos MontrĂ©al are currently looking for a ‘gameplay programmer’ for DX3.

    Tell you what, I’ll ring my French-Canadian friend Stefane; he’s spent the entire year animating spinning cubes in OpenGL for his university project. He graduated with top honours and everything. He’s even written a few in-depth guides for Final Fantasy VII for the French version of Gamefaqs.

    Of course, he’s never played Deus Ex in his life, but fuck that: he’s a master of the universe now.

    Cube-spinning you say? I smell a new hacking interface!

    EVERYTHING IS RUINED FOREVER

    I’d have gone for “Deus Ex 3: Yes, You are Ten Years Older since the First one.”

  8. Poltergeist says:

    It’s an okay title

  9. Pew says:

    It could be worse if it was Too Human.

  10. The Grafflebird says:

    It’s so very safe.

    Disheartening.
