Murdered: Soul Suspect launching after March 2014

Square Enix's Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC game gets release window.

by

Mystery action game Murdered: Soul Suspect will launch after March 2014, a Square Enix representative told GameSpot today.

Square Enix's confirmation of the game's release date comes after the title was left off the company's list of upcoming games today as part of its latest earnings report.

It turns out, the list of games--including Thief and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII--only featured title that will release by March 2014.

According to the Square Enix representative, Murdered: Soul Suspect remains on track for a 2014 release, though no specific date has been announced.

The game was previously announced with an "early 2014" release date.

Murdered: Soul Suspect is set in Salem, Massachusetts, the location of the Salem witch trials in 1692, which saw public executions of those convicted of witchcraft. During his investigation, O'Connor must interrogate the ghosts of Salem to learn more about his killer.

Murdered: Soul Suspect is currently in development at Airtight Games (Quantum Conundrum, Dark Void) for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

I was interested in the game when it was first announced. After more info at E3, I think it could end up being worth my time and money. Time will tell.

Does the game actually have anything to do with Salem witch trials, or were they just saying it for FYI reasons...? Ghosts and witchcraft in the game would both be cool...what if witches were in the game and could help you! Let's do this...

"O'Connor must interrogate the ghosts of Salem..." Just had an image pop into my head of Ronan O'Connor roughing up Casper in an interrogation room.

Looks like my PS3 will still get plenty of use next to my PS4. Quite a few games I'm interested in still coming out this gen.

I will say that this is possibly one of the first games they've made that have really interested me at least. Hope it comes out early 2014 though.

Grats Square Enix. Can't come up with your own stuff so you steal from Ghost Trick's surprised popularity.

Props for making it look like you came up with an original story though. No one is ever going to make any connections~ so it's ok. I love how you reworded stuff to avoid plagiarism.

Whenever I get a package of plain M&Ms, I make it my duty to continue the strength and robustness of the candy as a species. To this end, I hold M&M duels. Taking two candies between my thumb and forefinger, I apply pressure, squeezing them together until one of them cracks and splinters. That is the "loser," and I eat the inferior one immediately. The winner gets to go another round. I have found that, in general, the brown and red M&Ms are tougher, and the newer blue ones are genetically inferior. I have hypothesized that the blue M&Ms as a race cannot survive long in the intense theater of competition that is the modern candy and snack-food world. Occasionally I will get a mutation, a candy that is misshapen, or pointier, or flatter than the rest. Almost invariably this proves to be a weakness, but on very rare occasions it gives the candy extra strength. In this way, the species continues to adapt to its environment. When I reach the end of the pack, I am left with one M&M, the strongest of the herd. Since it would make no sense to eat this one as well, I pack it neatly in an envelope and send it to M&M Mars, A Division of Mars, Inc., Hackettstown, NJ 17840-1503 U.S.A., along with a 3x5 card reading, "Please use this M&M for breeding purposes." This week they wrote back to thank me, and sent me a coupon for a free 1/2 pound bag of plain M&Ms. I consider this "grant money." I have set aside the weekend for a grand tournament. From a field of hundreds, we will discover the True Champion. There can be only one.

This game looks great, and it's a new IP.

What about the discussion of Dead Rising? Ohh, it's facebook users, that's alright...

I was mostly a pc gamer but I have a 360 and a ps3, I'm not a fan boy for any system, I just believe that the xbox one really dropped the ball.

One of the few games I'm looking forward to, I just wish Deadrising 3 wasn't an xbox 1 exclusive

That screenshot in the article... I've woken up like that before.

Face down on the floor, staring under the couch wondering if that hangover will kick in.

I find this pretty disappointing.  I was looking forward to this game but by then I'll be gaming on my new console.  Sure I'll still have my 360 but I doubt I'll keep it hooked up.  Just wish it was a next-gen title also because I'd surely get it then.

By that time most people would switch to next gen and stop using their x360/ps3 , so it would be a no suprise for me if the sales would be lower than other Square Enix IP's.

@Eric Pena  It is really irrelevant !!!!!!?!

So that's why this game isn't coming out on next gen?

@Diegoctba It does look great. But they stole all their ideas from Ghost Trick and practically stole the story, only they changed small details like stating he's a cop at the start who got killed rather then an unknown agent who could or could not have been good or bad.

Closest thing to Ghost Trick coming to consoles so I'll take it. Still, it's just pretty ballsy with how they reworded stuff so they could get away with stealing a game's story from someone else.

@Mitchell Sabbag April 1st announcement as april fools prank!

No doubt they'll re-release it on PS4 or XBOX1 to milk people like you.

@xxYetterxx  Sure i would like to have seen it on a Nex-Gen platform but... " re-hooking " up your console does not sound like a legitimate argument to me.

Elena_The_Turk

@onuruca Considering the PS2 was still being used for over 10 years after it was made, and long into the lifespan of the PS3, there is little doubt that the PS3 will still be used long into the lifespan of the PS4.

@Elena_The_Turk How is it 'milking'  their customers by releasing it on the next-gen consoles?  I would still only buy the game one time for the console I own?  It also seems like your under the impression that they can just press an 'easy button' and the game will magically work on next-gen platforms.  I assure you this isn't the case.

@digits52 @xxYetterxx If it was something I was super excited about then sure, hooking up my 360 wouldn't be a big issue.  But it is more like I'm mildly intrigued, and that is not gonna be a big enough push to buy a last-gen game to play on my last gen console.
