It won’t be called that if it surfaces again.
AionGuard–an open world fantasy game–which was rumoured to have been cancelled back in 2010, is still in development at Avalanche Studios we’ve been told.
The name has been changed as well due to conflict with NC Soft. Here’s what Cristofer Sundberg, founder of Avalanche Studios, told us in an interview which is yet to be published.
“AionGuard (we’ve changed the name now after that friendly letter from NC Soft) is becoming the stuff of legend,” he revealed.
“We pitched the game around four years ago and publishers thought we were crazy. After a while we moved on to other projects, but AionGuard is still in the works and we’re taking baby steps to make it happen.
“It will be huge, once we start working on it in earnest.”
This game is one example of how publisher input can really hurt the creative vision of a studio. Stay tuned for our full interview soon.
