A series of trademark filings, submitted in 2009, reveal that Electronic Arts and developer Starbreeze are (or at least were) working on a new Syndicate game.
Syndicate, a real cult classic amongst PC gamers, was released in 1993 by Bullfrog, and tasked the player with control of a vicious futuristic company that uses cyborg soldiers to set people on fire and blow stuff up. Electronic Arts later bought Bullfrog, and with it the rights to any future Syndicate games.
Although we've been hearing about this project for a while now, this is the first time anything concrete has surfaced proving it actually exists.
Course, it doesn't prove the game is still being worked on - the three filings, all found by superannuation, are from 2009 - but after the big XCOM reveal yesterday, we won't stop PC fans from hoping for a one-two punch in the face from the heavyweight champion of nostalgia.
A triple confirmation. [superannuation]
