Square Enix has filed a trademark for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, but is that the title for the new Deus Ex game currently in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC?

Deus Ex studio boss boss David Anfossi revealed in October 2013 that a title for the new consoles and PC was in the works, as part of something called Deus Ex: Universe--which would be designed to create a connected game universe across multiple titles and platforms.

"The concept behind Deus Ex: Universe is to create an ongoing, expanding and connected game world built across a generation of core games," said Anfossi at the time. The studio also released a single piece of concept art (pictured), designed to show the "ghetto city" that segregates trans-humans.

"The people in this segregated class have reshaped their environment, nostalgic for their ideal of Cyber Renaissance. This dark and dystopian vision sets the tone for things to come in Deus Ex."

"It's a commitment on our part to deliver meaningful content that expands the franchise on a regular basis," concluded Anfossi, "and to deliver a deep conspiracy that will span several connected Deus Ex games, creating a more immersive and richer experience than ever before."

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided could always be a mobile game designed to slot into the Deus Ex universe, then: Square Enix has already dabbled in mobile titles, such as last year's Deus Ex: The Fall.
