According to a report from the LA Times, the canceled Starbreeze title that was announced yesterday by the developer was the Jason Bourne game that was in development.

An EA spokesperson confirmed it had no titles in development on the series of books from Robert Ludlum or from the movies starring Matt Damon.

The rep further added: “EA and the Ludlum Estate are still discussing making a game based on the Bourne franchise.”

However, several sources closes to the Ludlum estate insist that the partnership between it and EA, made last year after original owner of the rights Vivendi dropped it after its merger with Activision, remains very much intact.

Starbreeze also had a second project in development, known as Project Redline, which is thought to be a reboot of the old Bullfrog-developed IP, Syndicate.
