Right at the start of the Prologue, there are emails and articles about Patient X and how he can accept augs without rejection. Are they referring to Adam? He seems to fit the bill for this, but I thought he wasn't (noticeably?) augmented—so how would they know—until after the incident that kicks off the game.

So who is Patient X?

You are -- later in the game Megan Reed confirms it, and you discover clues by doing the various sidequests. While you were an infant a corporation experimented on you and a few dozen other babies; you were the only one to survive the modifications and come through, but the scientists who worked on you caught a bad case of remorse and torched the place after smuggling you out.

    Incidentally, the corporation referred to in the answer is Versalife. This will mean much more to people who played the first game.

It is ...

Adam Jensen.

Throughout the game there are several hints towards that possibility and near the end it is stated outright.


I haven't finished the game (or looked at any other answer here), but it has to be…

Adam Jensen. From the fact that he has zero need for neuropozine; he was genetically experimented on as an infant; the comment Sarif made in Jensen's appartment; and Megan's team only got the Patient X info when he was hired.
