It’s being reported Avalanche Studios is involved in the Mad Max game God of War II’s Cory Barlog’s been working on since 2008.

While Avalanche would not confirm anything specific, the studio told Eurogamer Barlog is indeed “working here with us in Stockholm as you have probably read on his Twitter recently.”

“That is out of my hands I’m afraid and in the hands of our publishers,” Avalanches’s Christofer Sundberg replied when asked when we can here more about the goings on at the studio.

“Sometime early next year most likely for two of them and later next year for the last one.”

Sounds like Avalanche is working on three games, then.

According to various tweets by Barlog, the game is coming out of preproduction, and the game will be released near the film’s debut. The film, Mad Max 4: Fury Road is slated for 2012 and stars Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron.

The game itself was confirmed to Newsweek by director George Miller back in 2008, who called it a “hybrid game” and also stated he delayed starting on the film in order to “do a really good game”.

So, expect the game sometime in 2012, we reckon. There’s no word on platforms yet either.
