The game, which was unveiled through a teaser site last week, will be available for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in 2014.
The news is accompanied by a brief trailer, which sees the game's protagonist facing death.
Believed to be in development by Quantum Conundrum studio Airtight Games, the game challenges players to solve their own murder.
Earlier this year, industry sleuth Superannuation reported that Airtight Games was working on a new AAA game involving a ghost protagonist solving crimes.
Fans investigating the recent teaser site discovered an evidence page, which provided a first screenshot of the game when using the password "Ronan".
The image was accompanied by the description: "O'Connor, male, mid-30s, 170lbs, 5' 11".
"Detectives aren't supposed to get bloody knuckles, but I've done a lot of things I wasn't supposed to do. I lived through it all, the beat-downs, the back-stabbing, disrespect most people wouldn't see in ten lifetimes and I never lost a fight... until now."
