Avalanche, according GI, nixed development on the last-gen version in order to optimize the PC and current-gen release.

In a press release issued by Warner Bros., those who pre-order Mad Max will receive an additional Magnum Opus car body called The Ripper. It sports a V8 engine, upgraded exhaust with custom off-road tires, a ramming grill and a tuned suspension “so it can take on a variety of Wasteland surfaces.”

Mad Max releases on September 1 in North America and September 4 in the UK for PC, PS4, SteamOS, and Xbox One.

Originally set for a 2014 release, Avalanche announced in April last year the title had been pushed into 2015.
