Bourne Game Killed?

The Jason Bourne tie-in game is the Starbreeze game revealed yesterday to have been cancelled, reports the Los Angeles Times (thanks MCV). According to a source close to the Ludlum estate, a partnership between the late author's estate and EA remains in effect, but an EA spokesperson confirmed that there are currently no Ludlum-related games in the works. A subsequent follow-up adds another quote from EA: "EA and the Ludlum Estate are still discussing making a game based on the Bourne franchise." Starbreeze says they continue to develop one title for EA, which is believed to be a remake of Bullfrog's Syndicate.

On one hand, I'd expect a Bourne game could have easily been de-Bourned.

On the other hand, I also expect the new Syndicate to be either an FPS or a third person action game.

And, contrary to people here, I think that could be awesome. You lose some strategy from breaking up the team. You gain the awesome feeling of having 50 mind-controlled people marching behind you blowing people away.

To the best of my recollection, I hardly ever broke up the team except to dodge. The controls and mission design weren't friendly for anything other than moving all 4 guys together as a single unit. Maybe in a few early missions I'd have one guy stationed at one end of the map to intercept incoming guys and another group walking around with an escort target, but pretty soon there's just too much chaos to do anything but run around as a blob.
