Avalanche Studios, the developer behind the Just Cause series, and the more recent Renegade Ops, has told IGN at GDC, that it will be revealing one of two in production games at this years E3.
Avalanche founder Christofer Sundberg told them that the new game won’t be a sequel to Just Cause 2 or Renegade Ops, but that it “will run on a modified version of Just Cause 2’s Avalanche Engine.” This greatly dissapointed me, however also give me hope for a much better game. Just Cause 2, although cheesy cut scenes, happens to be one of my favorite games of all time. (If you haven’t tried it, I believe there is still a great demo, and it is only $19.99 on PSN right now!)
Sundberg also told IGN that “all of the games in development at Avalanche will be story-centric open-world games. ‘It’s really challenging and fun to show license holders what we can do with an open world,’ he explained.”
Sundberg did state that the game wouldn’t be based on any upcoming film, however he also wouldn’t comment on the rumor indicating Avalanche’s involvement with Mad Max: Fury Road, the planned film.
