It's Murdered: Soul Suspect. VG247 got SE to confirm.
Square-Enix just sent VG247 an email to confirm the name of the game. Here’s what they said:

“Murdered: Soul Suspect is an exciting new game from Square Enix which challenges players to solve possibly the hardest case of all”
Quentyn said:

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.

Square Enix is teasing something.

The publisher sent out e-mails today titled “What is the hardest case to solve?”, which contains the following image:



The e-mail comes from Square Enix Members, and a reply-to e-mail is listed as ronan@murdered.com. Visit Murdered.com, and you’ll see the image atop this story, a Twitter link, and a “Legals” section. Hover your mouse over the latter, and you’ll see that whatever this is, it’s for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

I like this teaser theme. They could really be creative with this. Starting from Monday, they should update the site daily to include another S-E franchise which has been "murdered" - with the name of the IP appearing crossed out on a notepad list. I'm sure fans would love the teaser campaign!

What is with all the Wii-U port begging in every game announcement thread?
Why would people not want a game that is releasing on comparable hardware? I don't see it so much as begging as lamenting even at this point multiplatform titles aren't showing up on it, which is pretty significant.

Square did trademark a title along the lines "Murder Mysteries" or something like that not too long ago.

so, the first one is a chalk symbol on a sidewalk next to puddles with the reflection of a building, and the other pictures look like a downed tree trunk with a carving the same as the chalk.

mystery!
