Syndicate Creator Says EA Doesn't Understand The Franchise

The oft-rumored attempts to revive Syndicate at Electronic Arts are futile, Syndicate creator Sean Cooper has argued to Inc Gamers. Cooper saw several Syndicate prototypes while he was still working at EA, but none of them captured what made the original special, prompting him to wonder why EA is trying again.

It's said that Starbreeze Studios, best known for The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay, is currently working on a new Syndicate for EA.

"I don't think they [EA] really understand what the original game was," he said. "Every time I've seen a prototype of a new Syndicate it's just been misguided,” continued Cooper. "They've tried to be too quirky. They've tried to do things that aren't what the essence of the game was."

There was no mention of Syndicate at E3 this year, suggesting it will be some time before we find out what Starbreeze and EA are up to. Can Starbreeze change Cooper's mind?
