EA Confirms Syndicate

Well yes, this was an obvious one, but EA has now officially confirmed that Syndicate will be making a return in 2012 as an FPS developed by Starbreeze.

Mikael Nermark, CEO of Starbreeze Studio, had the following to say:

“We are excited to finally reveal what we’ve been working on the past couple years. It’s been a great experience working with EA, and an amazing opportunity for us to use our expertise in the first person shooter and action genres to bring back, and reignite, the signature action/espionage gameplay of Syndicate.”

  1. Never played synicate, I know its changed format now but doesn’t mean it can’t be good.

  2. “Re-imagined” as a “visceral FPS experience”. Doesn’t sound like it took too much imagination to make another FPS. Mind you, I guess they are just going with what gamers buy. Colour me disappointed. Would actually prefer an HD remake of Syndicate.

    • I’m guessing this has been somewhat spurred on by the success of Deus Ex.

      Disappointing, would have far preferred a strategy game, but I’m not going to write it off, EA do make some engaging FPS IP.

  3. I got the same opinion as Watchful… a HD remake would be so much better and having just another FPS like everyone else’s but with different cloathing.

  4. Syndicate in name only.

  5. I shall reserve any judgement until we know a bit more, as much as I loved Syndicate would that isometric style of game really work with all we can do with present day technology.

  6. Looks like EA’s been digging in the graveyard of old game franchises again and has found another corpse to violate :(

    They’d better leave the Persuadatron in the game though!

  7. Yay for another fps..
