More LinkedIn detective work, this time outing an unannounced, Square Enix-published title.

A NeoGaf user noted an update to Squeenix director Nobu Tanaka’s profile, mentioning three “signed” projects.

The first two were the Gas Powered Games-developed Supreme Commander 2, and Obsidian’s Dungeon Siege 3.

The third is listed simply as “Project X”.

The same observant investigator linked this information to another Square Enix staffer, executive producer David Hoffman, whose profile mentions “three development agreements executed”.

Immediately afterwards, Hoffman listed “Supreme Commander 2, Supreme Commander 2 DLC and Dungeon Siege 3”.

Square Enix has been rumoured to be partnering with a third Western independent for some time. Prior to its official reveal, Dungeon Siege 3 was also referred to as Project X.

Thanks, Go Nintendo.
