Starbreeze working on new Syndicate title for EA

Collaboration on 'Project Redlime' is update to classic cyberpunk franchise

Starbreeze Studios is working with Electronic Arts on a new title in the Syndicate series, sources have confirmed to GamesIndustry.biz.

The studio, already responsible for critical hits The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay and The Darkness, has been working with EA since August 2007 on the title, before confirming a collaboration in February last year.

The game has had a working title of Project Redlime, and is due for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

However, the game isn't likely to see release until work is completed on Starbreeze's other collaboration with EA, for a new game based on Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne character.

Syndicate's cyberpunk future first appeared in 1993 and was developed by Bullfrog Productions, a company co-founded by Peter Molyneux. Bullfrog was later acquired by Electronic Arts.

EA has not responded to requests for comment.

Awesome, nuclear grenades FTW! It's been too long since Syndicate Wars, and Starbreeze are a great team. Drop the boring Bourne, focus on this!

I loved the original but the game got extremely hard at mid-point of the game. Punishingly so in fact. On reflection games from that era certainly liked to kick the player in their nether regions on a regular basis...
