Okay Insomniac, now you're just being gratuitous. In the studio's latest bit of Fuse media – a mission briefing taken from the game – all four members of Overstrike's team show up after some gruff discussion about a "contact team." You know, "clean operatives with no ties to government" – sounds familiar, doesn't it?

Those four operatives are listed as "Overstrike Team 009." It's sounding more and more like whatever "Fuse" is has at least some ties to Insomniac's Overstrike, a four player co-op shooter first introduced at E3 2011.

Company head Ted Price wouldn't admit as much in a recent interview, but he was quick to point us to the official Fuse countdown site when asked about the whereabouts of his studio's new EA Partners game.
