Syndiiicate

(I'll stop it with the iiis now). Yes, a third Syndicate game has been raised as a possibility. Happy! Happy! Happy! That said, the raising was done by one P. Molyneux, the man whose picture appears next to The Big Book Of Hackneyed Phrases & Sayings' entry for "pinch of salt."

Here's what he told Shacknews:

"I really would love to redo a version of Syndicate. Syndicate was probably one of my favourites."

Whether he's just thinking aloud, hinting at an actual project or none-too-subtly putting it out there in case EA offer him a vast sum of money to leave Microsoft and come make it for them, I really don't know. Let's be pleased that Syndicate hasn't been forgotten, anyway. (Insane fantasy-land: given EA's recent talk of regretting killing off Bullfrog, they quietly re-recruit all its major minds and get the band back together. /Insane fantasy-land).

And in bonus happy! happy! happy! news, he offered this in reference to Dungeon Keeper (and Magic Carpet too, but I'm a bit mono-vision when it comes to DK), "One day, I'm sure that opportunity is going to come up and I'd love to do it."

In other news, J.D. Salinger announces a sequel to The Catcher In The Rye.
