IncGamers spoke with Sean Cooper, asking the game designer about the possibility that EA is making a follow-up/revival of Syndicate, the Isometric sci-fi game he helped create back when he was with Bullfrog. In spite of indications that the game known as Project Redlime is a new Syndicate game, Cooper, who now designs online games for a casual audience, expresses skepticism that such a project will get off the ground, "They've been saying that for the last fifteen years," he says. "Looking at EA's track record of announcing titles, saying they're going to revive it ... they don't tend to do it, because I don't think they really understand what the original game was." He therefore thinks even if a Syndicate follow-up comes, it won't be true to the original, as apparently more than one Syndicate-game prototype was floated during his time at EA, "Every time I've seen a prototype of a new Syndicate it's just been misguided," Cooper opines. "They've tried to be too quirky. They've tried to do things that aren't what the essence of the game was."
