Ooo co-op, devs better start adding splitscreen again and not going for online online only or non campaign splitscreen.

Syndicate is one of disappointed for new IP games last year (Dishonored and The Walking Dead's laughed at this). Please Starbreeze, do not bring full of lags like Synicate and making more long story co-op missions and better objective to do. Polishes very well. Starbreeze made Darkness good and great The Chronicles of Riddick. Starbreeze should aware and making depth better co-op shooter for Storm.

I hope their next title will be better this time around. Syndicate is fun for few days with friends. We enjoyed from start to end but we agreed it is so short and bored after few days of played it. It's need more long missions and numbers of hours than short co-op missions were in Syndicate for Storm.

Keep my eyes on this one through year until Storm release. Maybe it is next Xbox and PS4. My guess so. :)

I don't know what people saw in Syndicate. I saw nothing that made me want to purchase it.

This is terrific news. The Starbreeze guys are geniuses. I literally just finished my third play-through of Syndicate yesterday, and my opinion of it hasn't changed: it's the most underrated game I've played and features the best first-person shooting mechanics and combat I've come across.

After seeing Starbreeze unveil Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons as their next game, I feared their days of developing outstanding first-person action games were over -- especially after many of their senior employees left in 2009 to form MachineGames and the critical and commercial performance of Syndicate being lacklustre to say the least.

I am overjoyed to see that I was wrong, and am now very much looking forward to Storm.

You'd think Starbreeze would have learned from there Co-Op shooter Syndicate, and went back to what there good a making badass stories! (I.e. The Darkness and The Chronicles of Riddick)

In what bizarro world was Syndicate new IP? I remember playing it in 1994 or so.

The original darkness is still one of my top games of this gen. An FPS with characterisation and story telling

People talking crap about Sydicate probably never played it. While the single player wasn't spectacular, I spent a ton of time with the co-op. If the co-op in Storm is anything like that, it will be a day 1 purchase for sure.

@9 yeh, under no circumstances was Syndicate a new IP. it also looked like it would be alright before release, but then it just.... wasn't. although Chronicles of Riddick is probably still the worst game i have played this gen.

Grey Corridors: The Video Game.

Immerse yourself in more generic shooter action featuring a varied colour pallette with your favourites like grey, slightly darker grey and even 'that colour that looks grey but it's actually just a variation of white.'

Jokes aside, the co-op aspect is already appealing, Syndicate's co-op worked fairly well so similar mechanics would be welcomed with open arms, splitscreen wouldn't go amiss either ;)

Could they have picked a more ugly, bland picture to announce their game with? God that looks as shitty as bobby koticks dick after hes pulled it out of treyarchs ass!

I'll hold any possible interest for this until they release something better then an empty corridor to look at.

Syndicate was actually really awesome. Sure the ending was pretty anti-climactic and the co-op was usually laggy but the gameplay and visuals just made it soooo fun. And when Co-Op wasn't laggy it was fun as hell and surprisingly a decent challenge.

Syndicate Co-op was awesome as, some of the best I've ever played, the single player wasnt that bad either, nice graphics/violence, better than Call of Duty imo.

Syndicate was one of my biggest disappointments, would have rather had an updated version of the original isometric game a la X-COM. And the graphics... I thought they weren't up to much, I've seen much better.

Hey Xbox360achievements staffs, you can deleted my #5 comment since it is my fault and mistake it not new IP. I forget about it since this franchise is not memorable to me because first one last time ago then reboot last year. So it is easy for me forget sometime for game like that. :):)

Awk, its ashame this dev makes brilliant games.....the shame is that they are poorly made :/ riddick was pretty good until i got to the end and never recieved my game completion achievement, same with the darkness (which was a much better game) but when i completed darkness i did it on hard difficulty, recieving neither the hard or normal achievements....syndicate :( such a fantastic game! Fell in love with it on the demo and got the game as soon as i could after release and enjoyed it very much..for a while. First my campaign glitch and would not allow me to continue when i was so close to the end, meaning i had to restart, then, the bastardof all glitches! Got my multiplayer to something lime 85% really excited for that big acheivement.......wiped, everything! The developer is the reason i will never have full gamerscore on such a beloved game.

Syndicate was my personal biggest surprise of last year and an excellent game imo. I loved the cyberpunk world, I loved the Co-op and I loved how the powers if used properly made both the single and multiplayer modes an intensely gratifying gameplay experience.

Like many have said, the people who "hated it" probably never played it or sucked so bad at the online that they blamed the game for their own inadequacies.
