EA Seems to Ignore Why its Syndicate FPS Reboot “Didn’t Pay Off”

Syndicate XCOM Wasteland

Syndicate, the first-person-shooter reboot of the classic PC strategy series of the same name, has essentially been deemed a failure. Unlike the recent SSX reboot, which was described by EA Labels president Frank Gibeau as a “very successful launch,” Syndicate’s sales were apparently not up to expectations, and from the sound of it, we shouldn’t expect to see any other sequels to it in the near future. The thing is, Gibeau’s statements don’t suggest Electronic Arts realizes where it went wrong with its handling of Syndicate.

“Syndicate was something that we took a risk on,” Gibeau told CVG. “It didn’t pay off – it didn’t work.”
