Electronic Arts Cancels Its First Bourne GameEarlier today, developer Starbreeze Studios (Chronicles of Riddick, The Darkness), announced that it had canceled one of the two projects they were working on for Electronic Arts. Now, Starbreeze didn’t reveal which game was canceled, but according to the Los Angeles Times, the game in question was a new title based on Robert Ludlum’s Jason Bourne series.

This revelation isn’t terribly surprising since it was either going to be the Bourne game, which is an average game series based on a movie franchise with an uncertain future, or the game that is supposed to "reinvent one EA’s most acclaimed classic franchises.” Gee, I wonder why EA decided to axe the Bourne game.

A source told the LA Times that the 10-year publishing deal inked between EA and the Ludlum estate established last year is still in place, but clearly, this move doesn’t bode well for the future of the game franchise. Starbreeze’s next game remains a mystery at this point, but the leading theory is that it will be a reboot of Bullfrog Productions sci-fi series, Syndicate.
