Avalanche steampunk sandbox project on hold

Thursday, 16th May 2013 03:10 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios hopes to one one day make a steampunk sandbox game.

Speaking to Edge, chief creative officer Christofer Sundberg explained an interesting image he posted to Instagram recently.

“They were from a steampunk-style game we had in development that we put on ice,” he 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.”

So much for hope that we were looking at Just Cause 3. As for what the team is actually working on, Sundberg said we’ll have to wait a while longer to find out.

“We are developing for both current and next-gen, but the earliest we’ll be able to talk about it and go into any detail is after the games we are working on are announced,” he said.

“We’re also announcing new, interesting tech development that we do internally, but that is not until later this year.”

Although Avalanche Studios hasn’t released a console games since 2001′s Renegade Ops, it is responsible for an online sim called The Hunter. It is believed to be working on the next Just Cause and a Mad Max game. Hopefully we won’t have to wait much longer for more information.

Thanks, Destructoid.
