Avalanche Studios, the team behind the hilariously over-the-top Just Cause series, is going for something different with its next project. Or, so it would seem. According to CVG, the developer is working on a game for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade, which will be announced soon.
"It's original IP and a pretty cool little game," begins Avalanche founder Christofer Sundberg. "It's our first multiplayer title. We've built high production values on this title. It looks absolutely stunning. It's been such a success internally, PSN and XBLA is now seen as a very tempting world to go further into."
"There's so much work going into the tech and game design of our bigger, more risky projects, we thought that we could use that on XBLA and PSN; that we could use the same tech and experience to create something that costs about as much as one milestone payment for the bigger projects."
Sundberg ends by saying the mystery game will "probably" make an appearance at E3. I adored Just Cause 2, so I'm eager to see what this is. Anyone else?
