EA's Syndicate reboot that was too hardcore for Australian's sensitive eyes wasn't the commercial success the company was hoping for.
EA president Frank Gibeau spoke about the reboot with CVG recently.
Syndicate was something that we took a risk on. It didn't pay off – it didn't work. But in general it doesn't change my appetite for wanting to go look in the library and see what we have and maybe bring back some IPs for the next-generation. That's the nature of the business; some stuff works, some stuff doesn't." - Frank Gibeau, EA
EA's other reboot has done rather well however. SSX has been a "very successful launch fo us," according to Gibeau. "It's done well and you'll probably see more in the future".
So if you managed to get an import copy of Syndicate and you enjoyed it, we wouldn't hold your breath for a sequel anytime soon.
