EA-Starbreeze collaboration cancelled

Tuesday, 23rd March 2010 12:11 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Starbreeze has confirmed its canned one of its collaborative projects with EA.

The developer, who had two games going with the firm, announced the news this morning, although it is unknown specifically what’s been cancelled. Whatever it was was in pre-production.

Starbreeze had been assigned to work on a new Jason Bourne game last year, after EA had taken the rights to the series from Vivendi. Its second project is rumoured to be a reboot of the Syndicate IP.

“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.”

Thanks, GI.

    I’m guessing that’ll be the end of the Syndicate reboot, then. Can’t imagine they’d ditch a Bourne tie-in…

    EA are having a worrying influence on a lot of game productions this generation, I dont like them at all.

    If it was canceled it was probably because it was crap so just as well it never reached the market.

    Such a great IP just sitting around, wasted.

    @3: This gen? And the rest! They were almost single-handedly responsible for the premature (but inevitable) death of the Dreamcast!

    So they’re not all bad, then.
