Square Enix today announced an all-new game called Murdered: Soul Suspect. The project is due out for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC and will have players solving “possibly the hardest case of all.”
No developer or release date for Murdered: Soul Suspect was provided. It is possible the game could be from Eidos Montreal or Crystal Dynamics, both of which are currently working on unannounced projects.
A teaser website for the game went live today highlighting a myserious symbol. In addition, entering the password “Ronan” at the following URL yields a new screenshot showing a man who appears to be lying dead in a street. The shadow of another figure is featured over him.
The scene features an American flag, suggesting the game will take place in the United States, though the time period is not clear. In addition, there are several references to seaside activities, including fishing. A phone number is also shown in the screenshot with an area code of 725, which was recently approved as a new code for southern Nevada beginning in 2014.
In addition, the image properties for the screenshot above reveal further clues. They state the following:
O’Connor, male, mid-30s, 170lbs, 5′ 11″
Detectives aren’t supposed to get bloody knuckles, but I’ve done a lot of things I wasn’t supposed to do. I lived through it all, the beat-downs, the back-stabbing, disrespect most people wouldn’t see in ten lifetimes and I never lost a fight… until now.
