Avalanche "going next-gen on your assess"


Swedish developer Avalanche Studios has switched its focus to next-generation hardware, revealing that it'll no longer be working on PS3 and Xbox 360.

Studio founder Christofer Sundberg released the picture of console dev kits above, saying: "We're shipping 'em back. Going next-gen on your asses."

Avalanche is currently thought to be working on an "unannounced AAA title" which is targeted for release in 2014.

Just Cause 3 anyone?


Thanks, CVG.

Just Cause 3 would be awesome, wasn't keen on the first, but the second was brilliant.

Oh please please please let them be working on Just Cause 3 as a next-gen launch game. All they need to do to improve it really (other than improved graphics) is to include an on-line co-op mode. Open world games like this are perfect for online modes. Imgine doing a stronghold takeover with 3 or more buddies, rather than naff AI drones.

The small fact that 'Just Cause 3' and 'Just Cause 4' domain names have been snapped up by Avalanche Studios suggests these games could be in the offing in years to come. Co-op modes are all well and good if you can find the relevant people who are willing to actually behave as team.

Just Cause 2 was one of the best open world sandbox games I have ever played. I can only imagine how awesome it would on next gen consoles. The quality of the graphics and the draw distance I believe could be jaw dropping.

I suspect more developers will follow suit shortly. Looking forward to next-gen.

Ugh, next-gen again. I will be perfectly happy catching up with the quality games on these consoles for some time thank-you-very-much.

Totally agree; everyone is in such a hurry to have to spend more money on another system. The corporations will always want this; obsolete one platform as quick as possible, enabling their next big push to sell a new product-line to their 70-million userbase. 'Obsolete' is the most sought-after designation in technology markets.

I absolutely loved renegade ops and quite liked just cause 2 as well. I would like to see a third game but I also would like to see a dev try a new IP for a new system. New IP's tend to do better at launch when there isn't as much competition from. more well known names

the current gen does have too much to give at the moment that moving onto the next console straight away seems like a bad idea. can the graphics be improved that much more and hasnt 3d been a bit of a flop last year everyone was on about it this year noone some games donteven support it

I think we'd see more refinement that actual huge graphic jumps. Instead of poor frame rates, screen tear, jaggies and slow down etc we'd see much more polish. Whilst not a huge thing, it'd be very nice.
