The Square shooter that will (likely) never be

3D modelling contractor Daveed Kaplan has outed a presumably cancelled shooter from Japanese publisher Square Enix. The artist lists work on a “first person shooter based in feudal Japan” both on his website and LinkedIn profile (via VG247).

Kaplan was attached to the project from February through to July last year as art director, based in Square’s Cambridge, Massachusetts facilities. The CV seems to suggest that the game never quite made it into full-scale development following a pitch and demo.

Still, it could be one of those five IPs that Square is hiding right now.
