It's just a rumour for now, but the word on the grapevine is that Electronic Arts is creating a new Syndicate
game, with Starbreeze developing.
The original Syndicate
game is definitely considered an all-time PC classic and is one of the great strategy games to come from Peter Molyneux and Bullfrog in the nineties. Starbreeze meanwhile is a relatively small studio who have mainly focused on dark, broody FPS games such as The Darkness
and the fantastic Chronicles of Riddick
The rumour comes from CVG.com
, who are claiming an anonymous source who has connected the dots between a recent deal between EA and Starbreeze and EA's intention to win credibility by reviving a classic franchise.
The original game, which was released back in 1993, put players in control of a corporation with militant leanings that used a cybernetic assault squad to assassinate and capture rival executives.
There's currently no official confirmation from EA and no listing or announcement from within Starbreeze that the team is working on a Syndicate
title - but CVG seem confident, so we'll have to wait and see.
