RPS chum Stephen Totilo met up with Fred Wester from Paradox recently, and they had a little chat. Reader Lasse Bertheussen points out that this little chat contained a brief mention of Syndicate, which is currently being remade by Starbreeze. Here it is:
And down the line? Well, this is how Wester’s mind works: He loved the ruthless isometric tactical classic Syndicate back in the day. He also works in Sweden and is therefore privy to the fact that a neighboring studio is making a new Syndicate for EA and that the game is “more of a like a GTA wannabe than it’s like the original game.” Therefore, he wants Paradox to make its own riff on Syndicate. They don’t have a game design in mind yet, but that’s the dream.
I’m smiling. Are you smiling?
