Avalanche Studio reveals a mysterious “steampunk-style” open world game….which is on hold.
Earlier this year, Just Cause 2 devs Avalanche Studios sent out a tweet containing a few blurry images. As much as it looks like Rico leaping out of an aircraft, it is not a Just Cause 3 screenshot. In a massive tease, Avalanche CEO Christofer Sundberg revealed in an interview with Edge that it’s not a sequel, but an unannounced “steampunk-style” game that has since been put on hold.
In the interview, Sundberg talks about Avalanche’s strategy for the future and their next-gen plans. Partway through, the interviewer confronts Sundberg on his mysterious tweets from a few months ago. Sundberg responds: “They were from a steampunk-style game we had in development that we put on ice. I really love that art style, and to combine it with sandbox gameplay is a dream of mine. Fortunately, being an independent developer I can control my own destiny and we’ll make something in that world sooner or later.”
