Peter Molyneux Talks Possible Syndicate Revival

Acclaimed game designer Peter Molyneux has expressed a desire to someday remake Bullfrog's classic isometric sci-fi action title Syndicate.

"I really would love to redo a version of Syndicate. Syndicate was probably one of my favorites," he told Shacknews in a recent interview.

Syndicate was one of the many properties acquired by Electronic Arts when it purchased Molyneux's old studio, Bullfrog. Molyneux went on to found Lionhead, which was eventually bought by Microsoft and is currently developing Fable 2 (X360).

Molyneux also touched upon Electronic Arts' upcoming DS entry in the god simulator series Populous series, a franchise he helped create in 1989. "It has nothing to do with me," he noted. "I haven't seen it even."

Though the designer was clear that there has been no talk of reviving his past projects, including fan favorites Magic Carpet and Dungeon Keeper, he expressed optimism that he might revisit those franchises at some point.

"One day, I'm sure that opportunity is going to come up and I'd love to do it," Molyneux concluded.
