EA Reviving Syndicate

Shacknews has learned that Electronic Arts is currently in the process of resurrecting Bullfrog's classic isometric sci-fi action series Syndicate.

This lends further credence to recent rumors that Riddick and The Darkness developer Starbreeze has been tasked with the project.

Starbreeze and Electronic Arts partnered last year on Project RedLime, which was teased as a revival of one of EA's "most acclaimed classic franchises." RedLime is slated to hit PC, PS3 and Xbox 360--the same platforms as the new Syndicate.

Further evidence of Starbreeze's involvement comes from GamesIndustry.biz and CVG, both of which independently reported the news at different times.

At this point, it's unclear if original producer Peter Molyneux will assist with the project. It's unlikely, given that he currently heads up the Microsoft-owned Lionhead Studios, though Molyneux has expressed a desire to eventually resurrect the series.

Chris Faylor was previously a games journalist creating content at Shacknews.

    I was hoping for the project to be a System Shock revival, but i cant complain about a new Syndicate.

        If you disagree with me you're wrong.
