Starbreeze Studios to unveil new game at GDC

The new title from Starbreeze Studios will be on show – behind closed doors – at this year’s GDC.

Starbreeze Studios - just what does it have up its sleeve?

Starbreeze created two Chronicles of Riddick games as well as cult favourite The Darkness, before cancelling a Jason Bourne tie-in early last year. The studio currently lists “Project RedLime” as being in-development, but nobody’s yet been able to figure out just what that one is.

Rumours and speculation are flying, as the team has been linked to a reboot of the classic cyberpunk Syndicate, and I know of more than a few gamers who are likely to break their knuckles from crossing their fingers for that one.

Way back in 2008, EA and Starbreeze announced that they were working together to “reinvent a classic EA franchise” – and they’re taking their sweet time about it, as nothing has eventuated in the two years since.

EA are hosting a press event on March 1st, which promises to include details about Battlefield 3, Crysis 2, Alice: Madness Returns, Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning and Shadows of the Damned.

…could this be the public announcement of Project Red, which was accidentally revealed by the Australian Classification Board, last May? We’re still not quite sure what that Mature Adult rating was given to…
