Unannounced Square Enix game will “blow your socks off”

Have socks? Of course you do. Silly question. Best keep them in a safe place if you don’t want them blown away, mind.

Square Enix’s director of business development and executive producer on Supreme Commander 2, David Hoffman, says a new game he’s working on – Project X – will “blow” some “socks off”.

[I'm] knee deep in review for project X,” he tweeted. “When revealed it will blow your socks off! The media thought SE and [Gas Powered Games] was interesting – just wait!”

E3, anyone? It begins five weeks tomorrow, just so you know.

    I can’t see it coming from gas powered games to be honest

    Only FF it would be is a spin off, could have taken over development of the GRIN FF game doubt it though

    Sounds like it’s a collaboration project with an external studio rather than an internal SE product, so it’ll probably be something that Eidos were/are working on.

    i’m hoping for a new i.p, maybe play as a horny mutant pigeon lusting after manga girls and pecking things for achievements/trophies.

    saying that if its a FF7 remake? internet explodes, millions happy :D

    What if it is Soul Reaver and they fuck it up, darksiders wasn’t good enough for my tastes, if thats the best we can hope for with these action adventure games i’d rather they not bother

    they should just redo the first games story but give raziel a more elaborate move set and some more bosses

    Vampires are in at the moment

    They’d better not make Raziel sparkle.

    I’m willing to bet that this ‘announcement’ will get a big “Meh” from me.

    @Blerk the next gen sheen?

    Actually, it’ll be pretty difficult to get a decent looking character model design for a half decomposed vampire with no lower jaw

    No, the Twilight kind of sparkle I assume. ;)

    Seriously, though, if Gas Powered Games is involved, my money is on a RTS Final Fantasy spin-off.

    Ever since i finished Hitman: Blood Money i’ve been waiting for a new one, and it still hasn’t even been anounced yet. Yeah…the new Kane & Lynch looks to be surprisingly cool, but please please…Hitman next!!!!

    So strange to even think of a Hitman game when it says Square Enix, lol.

    What Blerk said, something western-ish for sure.
