A new report suggests that Starbreeze Studios
is working on a new Syndicate
game, with Electronic Arts set to publish. Word of the Riddick
and The Darkness
dev's involvement with the title first made the rounds
last October. Possibly related is a new casting call posted on superannuation
for actors in an upcoming "futuristic" Starbreeze/EA title called "DART
," which according to the post will be set in a "high tech city."
Though nothing has been formally announced, sources tell GI.biz
that the Syndicate
series is behind EA and Starbreeze's mysterious Project RedLime
, which was originally referred to as a "classic franchise" for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
While that project was said to be "already deep in development" in February 2008, don't expect to revisit the classic cyberpunk series anytime soon. According to the report, the new Syndicate
title won't be released until Starbreeze finishes up its current project
based on Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne. Until then, the four gentlemen in the corner giving us the crazy eyes will just have to wait.
