Speaking separately with GameSpot and Game Informer, Square Enix said the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC third-person mystery is set to arrive in 2014. However, after it wasn't included in the company's release list for the fiscal year, the publisher confirmed the game wasn't coming before March. Murdered was previously pinned for an early 2014 arrival.
Developed by Dark Void and Quantum Conundrum studio Airtight Games, Murdered places players in the ethereal role of Ronan O'Connor, a detective tasked with unearthing his own killer. O'Connor may be as DOA as Duke Nukem Forever, but he does have a repertoire of ghostly powers, like the ability to possess people so he can see through their eyes and read their minds. As Airtight's E3 walkthrough shows, the people O'Connor possesses don't seem to notice him doing so - maybe that's what it's like in real life, too. Maybe there are hundreds of spirits, watching silently through our eyes as we type these words this very moment ...
And now we've creeped ourselves out. Great.
