The Swedish developer known for its work on the Riddick series has long been associated with a reboot of Syndicate, using the codename Project Redlime. Despite frequent rumours teasing the game's announcement, Syndicate is still unannounced. But according to reports it's likely to make an appearance at GamesCom next week.

A hastily deleted Tweet from a Starbreeze staffer teased, “Grand moment approaching. The reveal for Starbreeze and EA’s Project Redlime. Time to meet the press."

That was followed by comments made by Official XBOX Magazine editor Jon Hicks, who said that a "secret reboot" would be detailed in the magazine's next issue. OXM had teased a Syndicate reboot before the announcement got delayed.

We reckon this is probably happening. Embarassingly, we don't know a single thing about the Syndicate series. We vaguely remember it getting ported to the 3DO though.
