NowGamer‘s reporting that Starbreeze is to show its new title behind closed doors at GDC in March.

The news apparently comes from an EA rep.

The Swedish studio was previously developing two new titles for EA via EA Partners, one on Jason Bourne and one codenamed Project Redlime, first mentioned at GDC 2008

Last year, it was confirmed by the CEO of the Swedish developer Johan Kristiansson that it had canned one of those two projects, which was reported to be Bourne.

Since last year, EA has registered a combined six trademark filings in regard to the Bullfrog-created Syndicate series, with CVG rumouring two-and-a-half years ago that Starbreeze was developing a reboot to the series.

The only games the publisher has confirmed for GDC so far are Shadows of the Damned, Alice: Madness Returns, Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning, Crysis 2 and Battlefield Play4Free, which make up for an EA Partners event happening on March 1 in San Francisco.

Battlefield 3 will also be officially unveiled at said event.

We’ll phone EA for more info later this morning.

    They’re working on a “classic EA franchise”, according to their website. What could it be?!
