Syndicate Release Date Announced

Officially announced earlier this month, Syndicate is a reboot of the classic franchise from the early 90’s, and aims to “to provide a challenging action shooter for today’s gamers as well as fans of the original.” With the FPS heavy hitters Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 releasing later this year, Syndicate will miss 2011, but luckily you won’t have to wait too long.

At an EA showcase event in Vegas, the publisher revealed that Syndicate will launch Feb 21st 2012 in North America, and Feb 24th in Europe. Developer Starbreeze Studios’ CEO previously had this to say about the game:

We are excited to finally reveal what we’ve been working on the past couple years. It’s been a great experience working with EA, and an amazing opportunity for us to use our expertise in the first person shooter and action genres to bring back, and reignite, the signature action/espionage gameplay of Syndicate.
