Speculative Rumour: Is Syndicate Coming Back?

Will Kieron start wearing the leather coat again?

Well, if this is true, it’s a bit of a surprise. CVG are claiming that EA will soon be announcing a new Syndicate game. Yes, Syndicate. Way back in February EA signed a deal with Starbreeze to make an old game from the EA cupboards. Known as “Project RedLime”, no one knew what it was. Kieron madly guessed Archon. We naturally asked you to guess, and kudos to commenters who got it. (Apart from the ones who listed the entire EA back catalogue). If CVG are right, that is.

Syndicate stands out for two important reasons. One, it was utterly great. And two, it’s responsible for Kieron’s… well, it’s responsible for Kieron circa 1993 to 2005. His life was really just one giant Syndicate cosplay. (Okay, it stands out for proper important reasons too).

So Starbreeze. Most famous for the highly enjoyable Chronicles of Riddick, and more recently The Darkness (and probably hoping we don’t remember Knights Of The Temple), they’ve no priors for the RTS. Clearly their focus so far has been on action, whether first or third person. So might this be the direction in which the Syndicate franchise is heading? Or will they go against type and make something true to the original? Or are CVG talking out of their bottom hole? Only time or psychic powers will tell. (Thanks to Pod for the tip).

I still can’t believe it isn’t James Pond.
