Syndicate reboot canned?

Starbreeze cans EA project, Syndicate said to be victim

Chronicles of Riddick developer Starbreeze has canned one of its "collaborative" game projects with EA, sparking speculation that its heavily-rumoured Syndicate reboot has been binned.

The Darkness dev was also known to be working on a Jason Bourne game with EA, the only project to be officially announced from the pair.

CVG first revealed that the reboot was in production and artwork and a script page later leaked.

"We will continue to focus only on a big production together with EA," said Starbreeze CEO Johan Kristiansson.

"Our relationship with EA is stronger than ever, and the aim now is to spend more resources on the game that demonstrated the greatest potential. This game is already in full production."

We've contacted EA for comment.
