EA terminates one Starbreeze game

Bourne or Syndicate project no more.

The Darkness and The Chronicles of Riddick developer Starbreeze has had one new project cancelled by partner EA.

The game was in pre-production, according to the developer, and could be one of two untitled projects.

EA signed Starbreeze to work on a game based on the Bourne franchise a year ago, after it picked up the rights to the action series from Vivendi.

The pair have also been collaborating on Project RedLime since the start of 2008. This is believed to be a reboot of the classic Syndicate games.

"We will continue to focus only on a big production together with EA," said Starbreeze CEO Johan Kristiansson, reported by GamesIndustry.biz.

"Our relationship with EA is stronger than ever, and the aim now is to spend more resources on the game that demonstrated the greatest potential. This game is already in full production."
