Syndicate probably wont get sequel

Quote:
But reflecting on the reboot of Syndicate, Gibeau conceded that the comeback was ultimately a false dawn.

"Syndicate was something that we took a risk on. It didn't pay off - it didn't work," he said.

"But in general it doesn't change my appetite for wanting to go look in the library and see what we have and maybe bring back some IPs for the next-generation. That's the nature of the business; some stuff works, some stuff doesn't."
aww...no more fps?

90% of people probably thought it was an original IP.

I liked Syndicate though, it tried to innovate and I think it worked, personally, but I guess I'm not the majority thinking that way. The hacking should have been more prominent, rather than being a little distraction amidst generic firefights, and it would have stood out more.

It probably did it more good than bad. Syndicate fans would of looked into the game and some of them gotten it. I only considered playing it because of the name. But after watching a couple stages of it I passed. Had I not seen it over my friends place I probably would of gotten it down the line when it was on special.

Just checked the number for it and it did about 170k sales.

Indeed it was poor, but i wont shed a tear for an FPS.
