"PR people love leaks," says Avalanche's Christofer Sundberg, "they just pretend to be upset."
"PR people love leaks," Avalanche Studios' Christofer Sundberg Tweets, "they just pretend to be upset, and so do the lawyers sending me those letters." With that, Sundberg dished a small amount of dirt on his studio's upcoming - and as yet unnamed - title.
It's not much to go on but, judging by the instagram, kicking may be involved. Apparently Avalanche's PR people happened to be visiting the studio, and Sundberg couldn't resist temptation. He immediately posted the picture, Tweeting that "this year will be awesome!" Whether that means the title Sundberg teased is due in 2013 is anyone's guess, at least for now. Though Sundberg was kind enough to also say, in a second Tweet, that "we're not next-gen exclusive", so if you're concerned about your hardware being able to play this title, worry ye not.
Avalanche is best known for its Just Cause titles, and its most recent, Just Cause 2, not only melted the heart of the severest of critics, but was also still pulling in respectable player numbers two years after Avalanche stopped directly supporting the game. Whether or not this is the next in the Just Cause series is an open question, one which Sundberg hopefully will be more forthcoming about, soon.
