    Remember all that old talk about the "Deus Ex Universe" and how Eidos's Montreal location was working on the future of Deus Ex? Yeah, I'm with you, it all got a little blurry for me, too. It always felt like a proper sequel to Deus Ex: Human Revolution was the sort of obvious move that would get fast-tracked and shipped a couple of years after the previous entry. But the years came and went with no new cyberpunk thriller from Eidos-Montreal. Actually, I never finished Thief. Maybe it gets all weird and computer-y later on, I have no idea.

    Anyway, there's been a bit of a countdown running this week for a Square-Enix reveal. It looked just computer-y enough to look like it was probably a Deus Ex game. And thanks to a leak that traces back to a Russian site, everything got set in motion a little early. The leak pinned the game down as "Deus Ex: Mankind Divided" for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Game Informer has since gone on to say (and I'm paraphrasing here) "hey, that's our May cover story and yes, it's coming out on those three platforms."

    This probably isn't a shot from Mankind Divided.
    This probably isn't a shot from Mankind Divided.

    Adam Jensen will ride his augmented bike back into the leading role, from the looks of things. The cover line for Game Informer reads "a cyberpunk thriller where player choice defines the world." That... sort of sounds like every modern video game ever once you get to the player choice bit, but GI is holding back the details that back that up for people who get their magazine.

    The official Twitter account of the Deus Ex franchise chimed in, too, primarily to promote the Wednesday morning reveal. Marketing plans are still marketing plans, y'all. Still, smart of them to at least confirm the leaks instead of playing coy for another day.

    It was bumpy at times (OK, pretty much just the boss fights), but I really appreciated Human Revolution. There was a ton of cool stuff in there, and I'm excited that the sequel is finally moving forward and getting announced. "Mankind Divided" sounds like the sort of subtitle that sets up a "pure humans vs. transhumans" sort of conflict, which has a lot of potential. Think they'll roll in some reference to people hating Google Glass as the "start" of the "war?"

    There's no release date attached to any of this, but considering Thief was an early 2014 release, I'd be surprised if this was out any sooner than mid-2016. Let's hope I'm wrong, I could really go for some more Deus Ex in my life.

    Very glad to hear this, really loved Human Revolution and was wondering when we'd finally end up hearing about a sequel.

    In excited for this one, I really enjoyed HR and forgave them for the few issues I had with the game. I'm hoping for a release this year but I'm gonna assume its 2016

    Wasn't this announced a long time ago? Maybe it's just cause it seemed a foregone conclusion.

    Did anyone ever check out the "director's cut" of Human Revolution? I heard they addressed the problems with the boss battles in that version. Seems like the sort of thing worth playing through as a refresher before this game.

    I'm looking forward to this. I think cyberpunk is the next big genre games are going to "exploit." I love the feel of cyberpunk and hope that Cyberpunk 2077 turns out to be good.

    Something not mentioned here is the fact that one of the major locales is to be the Czech Republic. I'm excited. From the looks of the screenshots, I think that we can also say: Fancy ceilings confirmed.

    Edit: I also feel like adding, that looking back on the last-gen, HR was probably one of the most ambitious games made. On top of really trying to go full on with this legitimate multi-approach thing, it was also trying to be the continuation of a game that many revere to be one of the best games ever made. The fact that they were successful is seriously impressive, and it's why I'm excited for this. It's also of the few modern day continuations of a franchise that doesn't completely bastardize what the original was all about.

    Jeff, you need to get current on VGCW. Adam doesn't ride an augmented bike anymore, he rides an augmented ATV.

    I should actually go and finish Human Revolution.

    It was interesting, but my obsessiveness with getting the most exp in all situation and inventory managing made it a little bit of a drag.

    I was so hyped for Human Revolution but by the time it came out I couldn't bring myself to even get out of Detroit (I think that's where it starts?)

    I need to actually play it one of these days.

    Man, I really wanted to like HR. Played through the entire game as stealthily as I could.

    But it was just an okay experience for me. :( Aha, is this my chance? To enjoy a Deus Ex game?

    I really, really liked Human Revolution so this is great news. Kind of interested to see how they put Jensen back in the lead role, considering Human Revolution was a prequel to OG Deus Ex.

    I loved Human Revolution, so I can't wait to see more about this. I looked at that stream briefly and it was just a guy doing push ups.... not really sure what to make of it, but if it leads to a new Deus Ex then great.

    I'm a little bummed that it's such a direct sequel to Human Revolution, but I sure would love to play more Deus Ex. Eidos seriously surprised the hell out of me just how faithful Human Revolution was to the legendary PC game, flaws and all.

    Fix those boss fights, add more of those fantastic high pressure dialogue-focused gameplay and you might have a killer game on your hands.

    I always got the feeling that Human Revolution was a bit clunky, but my expectations were probably all wrong for the type of game it was.

    Looking forward to whatever this ends up being. From all I remember hearing, they did a lot of cool things in the last one with plenty of feedback to improve on that foundation.

    Really enjoyed Human Revolution but somehow never finished it. I definitely wish I had never heard of the whole "no kill" achievement. It probably affected how I played the game too much. Looking forward to this.

    @hassun: Nope. Early report suggest her death is canon. Sucks for sure.

    I also remember that in the directors cut, the devs said that they also consider her death canon.

    Hopefully it's better than Human Revolution, not because Human Revolution is bad, I loved it (I even bought it a second time on WiiU), but there's potential there for an even better, amazing game.
