Square Enix’s murder mystery game, Murdered: Soul Suspect, won’t be done any time soon. Square Enix Europe announced on their blog today that the game is scheduled for release in early 2014.


Murdered: Soul Suspect’s story is about the player trying to solve the mystery of their own murder, but further details on the game are scarce as of now. Murdered is in development for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

    Its feburary man, geez
    Theres no point in S-E teasting this if im not going to hear about it again for months on end.

    I’m intrigued. Can’t wait to see if this takes a more adventure game approach (my hope), or if it’s more of an action game.

    Also interested in seeing which team is working on this game. Maybe it’s IO Interactive, now that Hitman Absolution is out. The style seems kind of up their alley, and it doesn’t seem like any of the other S-E development teams fit (unless they’re working with an outside developer here).

    By process of elimination, it’s probably safe to rule out:

    – Crystal Dynamics. They’re working on a new IP, but they’ve also said it would be a similar experience to Tomb Raider. Plus those Legacy of Kain rumors would be keeping them extra busy if they’re also doing that.

    – Eidos Montreal is likely tied up on Thief 4.

    – Avalanche is working with S-E on some open world action game (likely similar to the Just Cause series), but this… probably isn’t that game?

    – S-E’s Japanese teams – they don’t tend to make this kind of game, plus all of the info on Murdered seems to be coming out of S-E Europe.

      What d19xx said. Shadows of Destiny was an oh so sweet eyeopener for me back in my youth as to just how involving video game plots could be, and if this touches the same level… oooh how I’ll want this game.
