The lights are on
Nier developer Cavia was creating a new team-based shooter RPG codenamed Catacombs. It seems like it may never be released, however.
According to a new report from Siliconera, Square Enix planned to officially reveal the game at last year's E3. A source told the website the game is far along in development and "was playable, but Square Enix isn’t sure if they will complete the title."
Catacombs takes place at the Museum of Natural History in New York and features four playable characters as well as randomly generated levels.
A Square Enix representative told Game Informer, "We’ve not made an official announcement surrounding this title, and do not have any info to share at this time."
Cavia was officially shut down in June 2010 and absorbed into publisher AQ Interactive.
