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.
