The lights are on
We got a (not too revealing) reply from a Square Enix representative this morning:
"Unfortunately we are unable to make a comment."
Is this the first sign of a new Square Enix franchise? Let's hope so. Fusible spotted two domain registrations created on January 29, both registered to Square Enix. The registrations were for bloodmasque.com and bloodmasque.net.
Obviously, domain registrations aren't confirmation of a new game, but it's frequently the first sign of a new franchise. No other details about this story are known as of this writing, though some are speculating that the name "Blood Masque" indicates this new property might have horror or vampire elements.
We have contacted Square Enix about this story asking for an official statement.

nice yeah no offense to square enix but final fantasy is getting a little boring so it good to see a new property being born.... possibly -.-"
Or what you could do is finish FF XIII versus and/or kingdom hearts 3. We would appreciate that a lot.
if the name can be the judge i'd be willing to guess its from the eidos side of SE
I just hope it isn't a browser game like last time.
Hmmm,ya know what? I don't care. I just don't care...GODAMMIT SQUARE ENIX YOU SEE WHAT YOU'VE DONE TO ME!!!
As much as I want to be excited, I can't be. I sound like a broken record by now, but I don't care: they've got way too many projects to work on right now, and the only games that are seeing the light of day are mostly garbage.
I would be extremely happy with a vampire themed rpg if it were the case.
