Just Cause Summary
There are some things best kept secret, and this is perhaps one of them. According to an exchange between a former Avalanche Studios bigwig and their current CCO, the Just Cause dev almost had Star Wars.
In fact they "almost got that deal" sealed, according to former studio manager Oskar Burman. If it had of gone through, LucasArts "would be alive today," replied Christofer Sundberg.
It seems Swedish studio Avalanche is closer to naming Just Cause 3 as in development, as it describes a "ground breaking" project that's an "action title". Is it for Xbox 360 and PS3?
Christofer Sundberg of Avalanche back in April commented that Just Cause would be "perfect" for the next Xbox and PlayStation platforms. The studio has two more projects undisclosed.
Developer Avalanche, best known for the Just Cause series, has announced that it is opening a new development outpost in New York City, and that it'll be working on a game aimed at the next gen of consoles from Microsoft and Sony, which they feel will be released in 2014.
Sorry but Avalanche Studios can't just get to work on another instalment to Just Cause as "Eidos or Square Enix" are actually the owners of the franchise.
They'd "very much like to do" another one especially with multiplayer features and co-op as that "would be awesome", declared designer Axel Lindberg.
Avalanche Studios is developing Renegade Ops and SEGA will publish the co-op shooter. It's military themed and is heading for XBLA, PSN and PC.
It's all about "driving or flying around blowing stuff up" with friends says the studio. It's SEGA's "first new IP on the digital space" said the publisher.
