[UPDATE] Following the publication of this story, Superannuation dug up domain name registrations that indicate Deus Ex: Human Defiance is the title of the upcoming Deus Ex movie from CBS Films, a division of GameSpot parent company CBS.

It is not clear if the trademark relates to a new game or something else entirely, as the legal document covers both games and feature films, among other things.

Square Enix has not announced a follow-up to 2011's Deus Ex: Human Revolution, though the company is working with CBS Films on a Deus Ex motion picture.

Helmed by The Exorcism of Emily Rose director Scott Derrickson, the film was announced in July and currently has no title. CBS Films is collaborating with Square Enix and developer Eidos Montreal on the project.
