The studio certainly isn’t looking to tug at your heart-strings.
Avalanche Studios co-founder and CCO Christofer Sundberg has been teasing us, and even taunting us a bit with the lure of unannounced games for the next generation. But in a recent interview with EDGE, Sundberg reiterated his studio’s drive to produce all out action games that entertain gamers rather than emotionally engage them.
“We’ve never had any ambition to go very deep with our narrative and focused more on explosive fun. It’s entertainment! I have no ambitions to make players cry or have any deeper feelings.
“A great laugh and a big smile as players pull off a completely over-the-top stunt is all I can ask for. I can assure you that with our next games there will be plenty of ‘f**king sh**s’ to go around for everyone!”
Considering the number of moments the team packed into Just Cause 2, their last big multiplatform release, we can’t say we don’t believe him. We’ll just have to wait till E3 to find out what exactly the studio has in store.
