Deus Ex 3: Only Human?

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.
