series, has rebranded itself as Avalanche Studios Group. Alongside the rebrand, the company has also teased a new FPS game.The change to Avalanche Studios Group allows the company to recognise its three ‘creative divisions’, which are made up of Avalanche Studios, Expansive Worlds, and Systemic Reaction. Avalanche Studios will continue to focus on AAA titles such as Just Cause and Rage 2, while Expansive Worlds is dedicated to outdoor games like theHunter: Call of the Wilds. Systemic Worlds is the group’s self-publishing brand, which has previously released Generation Zero and is now working on a new, as-of-yet unannounced game.
That unannounced game has been teased with a new trailer, which indicates that it is an FPS. The audio design suggests that monsters of some kind will be involved, but little else can be learned from the 28 second clip.
Beyond Systemic Worlds’ untitled game, Avalanche Studios Group also promises “several games” are in development, which hopefully we’ll learn more about in the coming years.
Rage 2 Gameplay Trailer Stills
Avalanche’s most recent games, Generation Zero and Rage 2, both offered open shooter environments to explore, with the former focused on co-op survival and the latter high-octane battles. If you’ve never dived into them, Avalanche’s games are now on sale on Steam with up to 90% off. If you’re interested in Rage 2, see our thoughts on its bright and bouncy apocalypse and how to get every weapon and ability.
