Syndicate studio developing Storm, a new sci-fi shooter IP

Co-op FPS set to blow up.

Syndicate and Chronicles of Riddick developer Starbreeze has revealed the existence of a new sci-fi shooter project, titled Storm.

Starbreeze has listed the new IP alongside other in-development titles such as Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and Payday 2, PlaySyndicate spotted.

Launch platforms and a release date are not mentioned, but presumably the project is now too late for this console generation.

"Currently in development," Starbreeze's site states. "Co-op Sci-Fi FPS. It is our future."

Initial artwork depicts a moody, industrial scene, full of pipes and gantries.

VG247 points out that Storm may be the new name for Cold Mercury, a free-to-play shooter expected to follow Syndicate's launch last year. The project was rumoured dead or due for major re-working after the developer decided against adopting the free-to-play business model.
