Insomniac Games has renamed and reworked Overstrike, its new shooter in the works, which will from here on out be referred to as Fuse.

The firm’s founder Ted Price announced during his PAX Prime keynote today a new IP called Fuse, which Polygon noted looked “similar to Insomniac’s already announced shooter Overstrike.”

Game Informer went live with a post confirming that Fuse and Overstrike are indeed one and the same, and that the game has been reworked since last shown to the masses.

Fuse has a website available, but for the time being it only shows a countdown clock which looks to expire next month around September 11.

Insomniac Games announced Overstrike during E3 2011 and little has been heard about the game since, until today.

Back in June, EA said it skipped showing Overstrike at E3 2012 in order to give it more polish before showing it to the press. According to EA Labels president Frank Gibeau the game would “stand out better later in the summer once we’ve hit some key milestones and we’re able to show off more.”

Fuse is a first-person, four-player co-op shooter and is without a release date at present.
