Deus Ex: Mankind Divided leaked, coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One (update)

Looks like Square Enix's new Deus Ex game, the sequel to 2011's Deus Ex: Human Revolution, has leaked early. According to a cached version of Russian website Kanobu, the next entry in the series is called Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and is bound for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.

According to Kanobu's report, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will see the return of Adam Jensen, who will be outfitted with new augmentations and have access to new technology. A handful of screenshots purportedly from the game — some look like concept art and composites of previously released images of the new Deus Ex engine — show off how Mankind Divided will look on current generation platforms.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided appears to be a first-person stealth-adventure game with third-person cover elements, and it looks like Jensen will have robust customization options for his weapons.

Square Enix is currently in the midst of a three-day promotional event being broadcast through Twitch. The game, from one of the company's Western studios, is widely speculated to be the new Deus Ex title. Square Enix filed a trademark application for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided in 2014.

We've contacted Square Enix for confirmation on details.

Update: The new issues of Game Informer magazine confirms details on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, reporting that the game is set two years after the events of Human Revolution. Jensen will be part of an Interpol-backed team that hunts down augmented terrorists. Square Enix tweeted that an official reveal is set for April 8, at 9 a.m. PT.
