Avalanche Studios co-founder Christofer Sundberg has said that any developer skipping PC for a project “because of piracy” is “just giving in”.

Speaking in an interview with VG247’s Patrick Garratt today, Sundberg added that if one of its games is mostly a console game, it would ask the publisher to have no PC version.

“Avoiding a platform because of piracy rather than attacking the problem is just giving in,” said Sundberg, “so I’d recommend finding smart solutions to allow players the freedom needed to play our games full out and the developers and publishers getting their return of investment.”

He added: “If the game is primarily a console game, we always recommend the publisher to avoid a PC SKU as PC gamers are PC gamers and console gamers are console gamers.”

Just Cause 2 releases in the UK for PS3, 360 and PC tomorrow.

Sundberg confirmed that it’ll get DLC down the road, although wouldn’t go into specifics.
