The original Syndicate was a real-time tactical game from Bullfrog Productions created in 1993 by Sean Cooper and released for various platforms: PC, Amiga, SNES and Mega Drive / Genesis. A sequel was going to be developed for the Playstation 2, but it was later cancelled for unknow reasons. As we can read on Kotaku, it seems that it “was worked on for around a year. This would have featured a ‘free-roaming multi-tiered city’, and would have been home to three factions: the Syndicates, a rebel group called the Freemen and the mysterious Hybrid”. Only few concept arts remain from this project.
