Deus Ex: Human Defiance to be revealed today

[UPDATE] Official Facebook page announces "world's first look" at new game today; project appears to be April Fool's prank.

[UPDATE] Following the publication of this story, a website for Deus Ex: Human Defiance went live. It calls on users to "Like" the Deus Ex Facebook page if they wish to see an 8-bit Deus Ex game, though it appears to be an April Fool's prank.

The original story follows below

Deus Ex fans don't have long to wait for news about the next installment in the series.

The official official Deus Ex Facebook page has teased a "world's first look" at Deus Ex: Human Defiance today, a new game in the series. No exact time for the announcement was divulged.

Square Enix last month trademarked Deus Ex: Human Defiance. Domain names registered by CBS Films suggest this is the title of the upcoming Deus Ex film.

However, it is disclosed in the Facebook page comments that Human Defiance is a new game and not a movie.

CBS Films is a division of CBS, which is GameSpot's parent company

Human Revolution was one of the best games i've played in a long time. same i probably said about the 1st one.

hoping this is some kind of sick joke and i'm sure it's just leading up to another awesome game.

If you actually watch the video on the Deus Ex: Human Defiance website you would clearly see that it is an April Fool's joke. They may have tried a little too hard at it, but it was fairly humorous and is hardly anything to get mad over.

I've opened the page yesterday, and went back to check now because I've suspected it might be a stupid prank. 

This really isn't funny. It's just a minor annoyance made by one of the worst publishers.

If you play StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, you would know that Blizzard's April's Fools joke for this year was bringing the Warhound back.

I KNEW IT, I KNEW IT.....I figured those bastards would play a cruel joke like that! Ha, that's why I didn't even bother to get my hopes up. 

Douches.....(it was so NOT FUNNY, Squenix) <_<

"Deus Ex: Human Defiance" and something else was trademarked awhile back.  Are we certain the entire game is a prank and not just this single incident on April Fool's?  The "reveal" may have been fake, but the game may yet not be.

Someone needs to tell them that an April Fools Joke means it's funny. It shouldn't leave your intended audience p*ssed off at you!

You can rely on me, Eidos! I'm happy to say that I donated $10,000 to your incredibly ambitious and groundbreaking game!!! 

Alas, now I can no longer afford to feed or clothe myself. So now I'm asking you readers of Gamespot to help me with my livelihood  Please send check or money order to:

C'mon people, lighten up. You make gamers look like angry, frustrated nutcases who will load up their shotguns and rampage through the nearest grocery store.

I'm not happy with the current holders of the DE license, and behavior like this doesn't help at all. .. 


There will never be a Deus Ex like the original... Warren, why'd you go to Disney?!?!?!?!?!?!?  I mean, Human Revolution should've been called "Deus Ex: Arkham Asylum (with an exact replica of RE4's inventory system.... why not stick to the roots and keep it like the original rather than blatantly ripping off RE4, after RE4 had ripped of DE... revolving door ripping off)"

Ok, maybe that would've been too long of a title...

In other words.... I'm sick of sequals to my favorite games just rehashing gameplay mechanics from other games.

And enough w/ April Fools jokes... not diggin it.

even the so called expert journalists fell for this one, i was sure by now they would have learnt to take ANY news released on April 1st with a huge pinch of salt

If your april fools joke is a perfectly reasonable announcement that people would like to see its probably not a good april fools joke.

I saw that coming and called it. It's obvious since it's been announced for April 1st.

Is there a new thing this year where they try to make the april fools jokes as unfunny as possible? I think Square Enix might be winning.

All news from the games industry on April Fools should be considered a joke...unfortunately.

@quantumtheo It may have copied stuff from Arkham Aslyum. But it still was a fun game.

@DARKKNIGHTPRABZ I mean, the same joke is played out in every game when you go into the lady's room.... but you are right, there aren't too many jokes in DE.

@killman961 It was rumored that they were going to be rebooting/remaking the first game. That NEEDS to happen!

If so, then amazing :)

We really need more great stealth games (I love the stealth genre).

And the Human Revolution game was BRILLIANT so cant wait to see more of this.

@SavoyPrime Oh Lord yes, please this! I have been clamoring for this since "HD remakes" became a thing.
