Murdered: Soul Suspect to release on Xbox One, likely for PS4 as well

Posted on February 3, 2014 AT 05:30pm

The release date of Murdered: Soul Suspect remains as murky as the culprit in a hard-boiled detective novel, but Xbox Live director of programming Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb has revealed that, when Square Enix’s crime thriller does eventually release, it’ll be on Microsoft’s new console in addition to the 360, PS3, and PC. According to the game’s Twitter page, there will be “more news and a new trailer tomorrow,” so it seems that a PlayStation 4 announcement (and a possible release date) could be forthcoming as well.

Murdered: Soul Suspect revolves around the life and death of Ronan O’Connor, a Salem, Massachusetts, detective who’s been brutally murderedand now must solve the case and catch the killer by navigating the historic (and highly haunted) New England city’s expansive netherworld. The game’s being developed by Seattle-area studio Airtight Games, best known for Dark Void and Quantum Conundrum.

When I got the chance to chat with creative director Yosuke Shiokawa about the game last year, he told me that part of his motivation in making the game came from his time playing through L.A. Noire and Heavy Rain. He spoke of feeling frustrated at the detective elements in those two titles, so it’ll be interesting to see whether Soul Suspect will bring a fresh take on the traditionally clunky crime-solving game mechanics.
