Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios has officially announced the opening of its New York studio.
Headed by former Activision and Atari man David Grijns, the studio is working on a ‘AAA’ title currently known as Project Mamba, which is set for release on consoles and PC in 2014.
“Today is a great day for Avalanche Studios as we have achieved yet another goal by establishing a new studio in the greatest city in North America,” said studio founder Christofer Sundberg.
He added: “We are one of the few independent, AAA-budget studios remaining in the world after the disastrous economic recession of the last few years. While this was a huge wake-up call for everyone in our industry, we have prepared for this expansion for over three years and it is a great feeling to execute our plans with such resounding success.”
