Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is now officially confirmed as Eidos Montreal's follow-up to the 2011 hit Deus Ex: Human Revolution after screens of the game leaked online Tuesday.
Word of the game first slipped out — including screens and story details — in a now-removed post on the Russian website Kanobu.ru (via NeoGAF). Shortly thereafter, Game Informer revealed that Mankind Divided is the cover story for the magazine's May 2015 issue.
The sequel picks up in 2029, two years after the previous title wrapped up. Protagonist Adam Jensen's victory over the Illuminati was bittersweet, with an unknowing public convinced to turn against augmented humans all around the world. In Mankind Divided, Jensen works with a global law enforcement agency to disrupt the plans of augmented terrorists.

This week on Twitch, Square Enix has played host to a chat-driven "game" of sorts in which Twitch users influence the course of a live-action program. While the reveal, dubbed "Project CKP" — or "Can't Kill Progress" — hasn't been specifically pegged to Mankind Divided, the common belief is that the Twitch event was meant as a lead-in to the formal reveal. Assuming that's true, the Kanobu leak likely escalated the publisher's timetable.
Head over to Game Informer for more details on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. There's no word on release timing, but the game is confirmed to be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
