Syndicate + Starbreeze = New FPS

The rumors seem to be narrowing down on The Darkness developer Starbreeze’s next project. A feature on 1UP suggests that the game, currently codenamed Project RedLime, will be an FPS set in the Syndicate universe.

The article states fairly confidently that “the game will mix the Syndicate universe with first-person gameplay,” suggesting that this will be a spin-off rather than a full-on sequel. We say this because the original Syndicate was a cult classic RTS developed by Bullfrog, and Starbreeze will surely be shaking up that formula.

Multiplayer is reportedly a strong focus for the next title, which will focus on a strong core mechanic to set itself apart from other shooters. Could a reveal be on the cards for next week?
