Starbreeze Studios Working On Existing EA Franchise

Starbreeze Studios, the developer of The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay and The Darkness, is working with Electronic Arts to reinvigorate one of the publisher's "most acclaimed classic franchises." The project, which carries the codename Project RedLime, is in development for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Project RedLime, which will be officially announced at a later date, will be published through the EA Partners label. EA Partners also recently published games including Crysis, The Orange Box and Hellgate: London.

"EA Partners gives independent developers like Starbreeze access to EA's unrivaled global publishing infrastructure, letting us focus our energy on what we do best - making incredible games," said Johan Kristiansson, CEO of Starbreeze Studios.

"We're already deep in development on Project RedLime and the team at EA is giving us the time we need to perfect our vision. We're excited to bring a new perspective and gameplay innovation to this beloved fiction."
