Square Enix trademarks ‘Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’ in Europe

Posted on March 28, 2014 AT 03:47pm

Square Enix yesterday filed a trademark for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided through Europe’s Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market for trademarks and designs.

The trademark description lists Mankind Divided as “computer game software; computer games, consisting of computer software; video game software; video games, consisting of computer software.”

Though, also listed—and let’s hope this is just more base-covering and not another instance like The Fall—“games for mobile phones, consisting of computer software; computer software for computer games, video games and games for mobile phones supplied on line by means of multi-media electronic broadcast or network transmission.”

A similar listing has yet to be filed through the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

The company’s last Deus Ex-related trademark registration, Deus Ex: Universe (a sort of connected hub for all-things Deus Ex), was filed on September 10, 2013 in Europe, September 11 in North America. Perhaps tomorrow or early next week we’ll the trademark pop up Stateside.

Mankind Divided does, however—much more so than Universe—come off as very videogame title-y to me. In this past October, Eidos Montreal confirmed that a new Deus Ex was in development for Windows PC, PS4, and Xbox one. Later that same month, a casting call turned up that shined some light on what’s clearly a Deus Ex character named Hiroshi Saito, an Illuminati Shadow Agent.
