Electronic Arts has revealed release dates for the upcoming Starbreeze Studios-developed Syndicate first-person shooter reboot.

EA announced at a Gamasutra-attended press conference in Las Vegas on Tuesday that the game will be released in North America on February 21, 2012, while it will see a release on February 24 in Europe. These dates were later clarified by an EA representative to Gamasutra.

The company also confirmed to Gamasutra that the PC version will be released at the same time as the console versions.

The Syndicate reboot was first announced by EA earlier this month, as the company said that it was reviving the classic franchise as a "brutal sci-fi first-person shooter experience."

EA also revealed at the press conference that Klei Entertainment's 2010 2D downloadable brawler Shank has been given the greenlight for a sequel.

Syndicate developer Starbreeze Studios revealed earlier this month that it is working on a new, as-of-yet unannounced IP with a top Swedish film director.

I think I can speak for all geeks over the age of 30 when I say: "Please don't suck." ;)

Oh, and can somebody come out with a table/smartphone port of the original game?

I think I can speak for all geeks over the age of 30 when I say that it already sucks because it's an FPS. No offense to Starbreeze...I know they can turn out a solid shooter but really, WTF EA?

I just can't wrap my head around the mentality behind this move.

Oh EA won't be getting mine.

Man this will feel like just another shooter with other gimmicks ! Do not get me wrong I absolutely love FPS games but some titles merit that they keep the essence and putting this title in FPS is just wrong imop. those games looked and worked best in 2D iso!! FASA Interactive f-up shadowrun, Bethesda F-Up Fallout and now I feel like crying :-(

Syndicate getting the X-Com treatment... :( sorry, that's XCOM. Is this the trend now? Take a classic game and FPS it? I want Archon, the FPS.
