Just Cause 2 dev has an open-world steampunk game 'on ice'

Mysterious Avalanche Studios screenshots explained

Avalanche Studios chief creative officer Christofer Sundberg has revealed that the studio has an open-world steampunk game in the works, though the project is currently on hold.


Speaking to Edge, Sundberg revealed that images posted to his Instagram account earlier this year were not from Just Cause 3, but from an unannounced and currently "on ice" open-world steampunk game.

"They were from a steampunk-style game we had in development that we put on ice," Sundberg said. "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."

Sundberg also said the studio is currently developing for both current and next-gen consoles, and will announce details of a new "interesting tech development" later this year.

Avalanche Studios is rumoured to be working on at least two titles, including Just Cause 3 and a Mad Max film tie-in.
