Everybody's Talking: Starbreeze & Syndicate

Didn't we deal with this back in October?

You might remember that we ran a story on this back in October, when UK publication CVG heard from a tipster that "Project RedLime," a code name for a game under development at Starbreeze and to be published by Electronic Arts, was going to be a new game bearing the Syndicate name.

Today, it sounds like more tipsters are running around to other publications and saying the same thing, further confirming the rumor that there's a rumor about a rumor about Starbreeze and Syndicate. But this time, most of the stories are tracing back to this GI.biz story, which further states that the game is headed to the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. It goes on to say that the game won't be released until Starbreeze is finished with the Jason Bourne game that it's also doing for EA.

I had done a pretty good job of forgetting that this was supposedly happening. If I keep exciting rumors like these on my mind for too long, I start to get all crazy. So now I'm all excited again. While I go breathe into a paper bag for a few minutes and try to get it together, you guys go ahead and argue about whether or not the Syndicate concepts can be updated and placed into a modern game without feeling totally hokey.
