Square Enix's Murdered: Soul Suspect out early 2014

Square Enix's mysterious new title coming out on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

by

Murdered: Soul Suspect, Square Enix's mystery-shrouded new title, will be out in early 2014, the publisher has announced.

The game will be coming to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

In Murdered: Soul Suspect, players are tasked with tracking down their own killer. Earlier reports have suggested the game might be set in Salem, Massachusetts--the location of the Salem witch trials in 1692, which saw public executions of those convicted of witchcraft.

Square Enix also revealed the first teaser trailer for the game, showing a 30-second CGI movie where a character falls out of a window accompanied by a murky aesthetic and voice-over.

The game has its own cryptic ARG going on over at www.murdered.com, facebook.com/murdered, and twitter.com/murdered. Even the game's press release hid an encrypted message: in the dusk beware.

God dammit, and here I was thinking i read the title "square enix murdered". I was about to say finally, now they can ditch all their crappy titles over the last couple of years and go back to being squaresoft.

Certainly an interesting premise. I'll take it over the glut of first person shooter and zombie games.

So what has the Square done with thief 4? They talked about it in 2009 and nothing since. What gives.

"Soul Suspect" is one of those game titles which only makes sense to Japanese people.

I'm really liking what Square Enix has been doing lately and branching out to do different kind of stories.

I have no idea what Murdered: Soul Suspect is going to be about, but what I've seen/heard so far has piqued my attention.

Don't see anything interesting just something that could be interesting ,but why 2014? Don't they have the know how to do it earlier? OR THEY ARE SO BUUUUUUUUUSY that they can't bother with it right now ? It's about time this marketing BULL STOPS because it is VERY ANNOYING AND SOMETIMES IT TURNS BOUMERANG!

If Square Enix wants to earn my money.. They should make FFIX,FFX,... etc. for PC first.

Then I'll be interested. Otherwise HELL NO.

based on the wonderful rumours I'm hearing, I won't be able to afford a next gen console until 2015, so it might be nice to get some titles for the 'old' stuff ;)

And I thought games released for 2014 and later were going to be next-gen.

Well at least it's another new game from Square while waiting on news regarding Versus XIII and (hopefully) Kingdom hearts 3. (which i doubt i'll hear mention of either game lol)
