Syndicate developer making new IP

With Swedish director Josef Fares.

Syndicate developer Starbreeze Studios is making a new IP with Swedish director Josef Fares.

The game is based on a concept developed and pitched by Fares, who has a number of hit Swedish films under his belt. Swedish media company The Story Lab is also on board.

"I love games, and I have been working on a games concept for quite some time," Fares said (translated by Eurogamer's Swedish cousins, Eurogamer.se). "The more I worked with the concept, the more convinced I felt that this is a solid game idea.

"Together with The Story Lab we created two prototypes that we pitched to the game developer Starbreeze. They liked the idea, and here we are now."

Starbreeze was quick to give the new game the thumbs up. "Directly when Josef presented the idea, we understood that it's a very elaborate concept and that it can be a really great," Starbreeze CEO Mikael Nermak said.

"We started immediately doing sketches the very same day."

Starbreeze is currently hard at work on Syndicate, a first-person shooter based on the cult classic strategy game.

The Swedish studio made The Darkness in 2007 and The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena in 2009.
