So I guess Syndicate was just something for them to get out of the way :\
Choose your government: the majority ruling the minority, the minority ruling the majority, or everyone ruling themselves long as they do not initiate force, fraud, or theft against one another?
Syndicate was a very unfortunate contract for this company.
No, Syndicate was a property most developers would kill or die to get their hands on. Starbreeze took a beloved franchise and cocked it up. All they needed to do was look at what made the game great and do more of that.
Instead they re-worked the property into some kind of oddball first-person shooter because someone in a suit and tie at EA thought they needed more shooters.
It would have worked great as a 3rd person shooter (ie, Gears of War) and they could have kept most of what made the first game great.
