“There is scope to remake” strategic Syndicate, says EAP producer

There’s “scope” to remake the original, strategy-based Syndicate, but only for platforms “more suitable” than consoles, the game’s producer on the EA Partners side has said.

“The original was such a classic. There is scope to remake it,” EAP executive producer Jeff Gamon told EG.

“But I don’t think it necessarily has to be exactly the same genre. If we did there are probably other platforms which are more suitable for it than the consoles we’re making it for, if we wanted to go in that more strategic route, that perspective.”

On a potential PC and iOS release, Gamon said that there’s “loads of potential. We’re not limited at all. But that’s purely speculative at this point.”

The original Syndicate released on PC in 1993 from Bullfrog and Peter Molyneux. The new title, made by Riddick dev Starbreeze and publisher EA Partners, is a first-person shooter affair.

The reboot’s out on February 21 in the US and February 24 in the UK for PS3, 360 and PC.
