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.”
