[Update: Game Informer confirmed the game exists after the leaks]. Square Enix is evidently preparing to unveil a new game called Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
The Japanese publisher of the Final Fantasy series is teasing on its Twitch channel an announcement coming at 3 p.m. Pacific time today about a new “reveal.” So far, the images just show a security camera view of a man lying on the floor in some kind of prison cell.
But the leakers at NeoGaf and other online hubs, translating a post on a Russian site, have images of the new game. The new Twitch channel is titled “CantKillProgress,” which certainly seems like a reference to the augmented human abilities that are one of the main features of the Deus Ex storyline.
The title would be a long-awaited sequel to the 2011 game Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and it will come out on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the PC, according to the leak. No word on a release date yet. We’ll likely hear more about the game as soon as Square makes it official.
Square Enix reportedly trademarked the name Deus Ex: Mankind Divided in 2014. We’ll find out soon if that’s it.
