Swedish developer Starbreeze has been spotted trademarking the name Syndicate three times.

EA's name pops-up in one of the filings, suggesting - this time with little shred of doubt - that the codenamed "Project RedLime" collaboration is a re-imagining of Syndicate.

The trademarks can be found on Superannuation.

EA signed Starbreeze Studios (The Chronicles of Riddick, The Darkness) in early 2008 to rework a major franchise for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Starbreeze had also been tinkering with a Bourne romp for EA, although the project was terminated last month. EA, however, is still "discussing" the possibility of such a game.
