Syndicate Reboot at Gamescom?
The staff at Starbreeze Studios (The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, The Darkness) are working on a secret game for some time now…years even, that hasn’t been given an official title yet except for the secretive ‘Project Redlime’ codename.
There are signs from the community at large, yes Syndicate is still being played by many people in the world, and from the company that the game will finally be announced at this year’s Gamescom.
The classic PC game was a great mix of strategy, action, and sim as you played a mega corporation who would use agents to commit wet-works and all sorts of great cyberpunk espionage. The real-time combat and tactics were really ahead of their time and were always a blast to play, so I can’t wait to find out if we’re going to have another Syndicate on our hands soon.
Now that console games have caught up with PC, I can easily see these guys making a ported version for the current gen consoles. We’ll have to wait for next week to find out for sure.
