Founder of Avalanche Studios Announces His Departure
One of the founders of Avalanche Studios is leaving the company he created back in 2003. I’m talking about Christofer Sundberg, the same that created a studio from his kitchen and led it to be known worldwide for its IPs.
He just posted this announcement at Twitter:
I just announced to the team here at #AvalancheStudios that I will be leaving the company at the end of April. The studio I founded in my kitchen, built, ran and loved for 16 years, working together with fantastic individuals and teams.
Founded by Linus Blomberg and Christofer Sundberg in 2003, Avalanche Studios focuses their development on open world projects and bases them on their proprietary Apex game engine. Avalanche Studios is best known for developing the Just Cause, Mad Max, The Hunter and Renegade Ops.
Formed after the collapse of Rock Solid Games, the studio gained early success with the first Just Cause title. The team then began Just Cause 2’s development, but the company suffered from financial problems due to the cancellations of two contracted projects.
Despite missing the release window twice, Just Cause 2 was both a critical and financial success for Avalanche Studios. The company then opened a New York City studio to work on Just Cause 3, while the Stockholm team began working on Mad Max in collaboration with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. The company announced three titles in 2017, Rage 2 with id Software, Just Cause 4, and a self-published title named Generation Zero. Nordisk Film also acquired the company in the same year.
