VG247 reports they got confirmation from Square Enix about the game's title with Square saying: “Murdered: Soul Suspect is an exciting new game from Square Enix which challenges players to solve possibly the hardest case of all”.
A teaser site with a strange symbol and a simple web game that requires you to put a password has gone live. In the web game, if you input the password 'Ronan', you get to download the image shown above titled "Evidence". IF you dig deeper, the image's properties also reveals more information about the image:
"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"
People all over the net are speculating that this could be a new title from Crystal Dynamics, the developer who just wrapped up development for the Tomb Raider reboot coming out this March.
Everything's up in the air to what kind of game this could be, but I'm crossing my fingers for this being a suspense thriller that requires us to do some detective work. hopefully similar to L.A Noire.
