The lights are on
Starbreeze Studios, developers of the recent Syndicate reboot, are exploring a variety of gaming frontiers – including a free-to-play title called Cold Mercury.
The developer isn't revealing any details about the game just yet, but CEO Mikael Nermark is reassuring fans that the studio is still committed to triple-A projects. "Starbreeze will not leave the triple-A segment," he said.
"We are discussing with several leading game publisher on publisher-financed games, but we will broaden our product portfolio of games in the new business models and segments that have arisen in the games industry."
Starbreeze has previously announced that it is working on a PSN title, as well as a game currently dubbed P13 that involves Swedish director Josef Fares. It's unknown if these two projects are one and the same.

Everything is turning free to play! and I've been wanting to try Syndicate
Well if its free on psn count me in i love free stuff :)
Hmm, it'll be nice to see what Starbreeze contributes.
F2P means more noobs, sweet. I will be one of them. ;)
Awwww... If only they would put in on the 3Ds...
Well good luck to them, but that market is going to become as over-saturated as the AAA market, but a whole lot faster I think.
F2P seems like a good idea...always struck me as odd that you have to pay to play a game you already bought
Could be good :)
My fav three words free-to-play.
