The week so far has seen quite a lot of gaming activity, and a few gaming rumours coming true. Here's a roundup of the latest gaming news around:
EA cancels new Bourne game, puts Starbreeze on new Syndicate game instead
This rumour has been circulating around the web for a few weeks now, but it has now been confirmed. EA has told Starbreeze to put a hold on the Bourne game they were developing, and pushed them to use their talents on Project Redlime instead, a game that everybody thinks will be a new Syndicate game. While the Bourne game was described by Starbreeze to still be in its “pre-production phase”, the developers said they were eager to focus on Project Redlime, a “game [that] is already in full production”.
The 2008 game by Vivendi Games
This move by EA comes after the company acquired a 10-year license with the Robert Ludlum estate last year, and fuels speculation as to the solidity of the deal. EA had acquired the license from Vivendi Games, which had released the Bourne Conspiracy for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2008, to a dismal response.
