Overstrike returning with a new name?

Insomniac Games CEO Ted Price announced a new intellectual property called Fuse during his Penny Arcade Expo keynote in Seattle today.

The publisher shared a single screenshot (above) of the new IP. An 11-day countdown teaser site is available at FuseGame.com. Above the timer, to the right, the text “Overstrike Data Node” can be seen.

Given the word Overstrike’s appearance on the site, as well the game’s similar visual style to Overstrike, Insomniac’s E3 2011-announced EA Partners project, it’s a fair guess that Fuse is actually Overstrike with a new name.

    This is all so confusing. :|

    EDIT: Also, that robot thing looks vaguely Helghast-y.

    Noooooooooooo!!! I loved what they showed for Overstrike and I’ve been hoping for it to show back up. Not like this though :(

    I hope they keep the cartoony art style shown in the overstrike trailer.  I was really excited about that game.

    Wanna see more of Izzy, she’s a great character (judged by the couple of seconds in the last trailer).

    I read this is the new name of Overstrike too. Apparently the enemy in the screenshot is one from Overstrike. Seems like they rebranded the game.
