A document (PDF) released today shows that Revolution, along with 30 other European developers, has been selected to receive funding from the European Commission via the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency. According to the EACEA website, the funding is provided to "improve the competitiveness of the European video games industry, by increasing its capacity to develop European Audiovisual works with a high circulation potential, both in the EU and beyond."
The document was spotted by VG247, who have details on some of the other developers. As you can see from the list of recipients, the details on each project is limited to just a title. The project Revolution has put forward is titled "The Enemy Within". Having just a project title is not much to go on unfortunately. No mention of Broken Sword, nor other past games, so perhaps it's an entirely new franchise.
In order to be considered for funding, developers had to reach certain criteria and submit their application by March of this year. The funding is limited to less than 50% of the overall project funds, up to a maximum of €150,000. Revolution are set to receive the maximum, which apparently equates to 37% of the project funding.
Given how long game development takes, it may be some time before further details of this project are revealed.
