Avalanche Studio Returns Current Gen Dev Kits, Focusing Only On Next-Gen
Avalanche Studios has made it public that they aren't working on anymore current gen console games. The Xbox 360 and PS3 are past their prime in the eyes of Avalanche and they want to embrace the newness and the hotness of next-generation console technology, hence they packed up and shipped all their dev kits back to Sony and Microsoft.
Now Gamer caught the Tweets from Avalanche Studios' head honcho, Christofer Sundberg, who stated that...
We're shipping 'em back. Going next-gen on your asses.
That tweet was followed up with a picture that you can view below of the dev kits for the Xbox 360 and PS3 being prepped and packaged to head back to Microsoft and Sony's respective trash bins.
Avalanche has always been very vocal about their next-gen aspirations, stating that they wouldn't have any games planned for release in 2012 because they were focusing on several next-gen titles, presumably being designed in time for a launch day release for Microsoft and/or Sony's next-generation console launch in 2013 and/or 2014.
The studio has already been hiring and ramping up production on their next big open world title, as they were last spotted hiring a vehicle designer for a next-gen title.
