Speaking with Computer and Video Games at Gamescom, EA Labels president Frank Gibeau talked about plans to revive some of EA's older franchises. "We do have a couple of old franchises that we're looking at right now... reimagining them and bringing them back," he told them. "We've got 25 years of good IPs and I've worked on a few of them in my career like Road Rash and the Strike series. So I have a strong affinity for a lot of the things we've done in the past." He also talks of the challenges this presents. "But when we look at Road Rash, the Strike series or some of these other franchises we really challenge ourselves. We can't just put them on new tech with the same gameplay from ten years ago, we've got to have something new. That's the typical challenge that we have." They reference ongoing rumors about a Syndicate remake/revival, but Gibeau does not address these.
