Just Cause and its sequel both take place in tropical sandboxes, kitted out with modern day bells and just a touch of real world grounding. Christofer Sundberg, the chief creative officer at Avalanche Studios, wants to take things in a somewhat more fantastic direction.
Referencing some pictures that made their way up onto his Instagram account earlier in the year, Sundberg said, “They were from a steampunk-style game we had in development that we put on ice.” He describes the prospect of combining such an aesthetic with sandbox gameplay as a “dream” of his.
Though the game is presently on hold, Sundberg has assured gamers that he intends to do something set in that steampunk world “sooner or later.” It might end up being for a next-gen console, too, seeing as he has confirmed that Avalanche is presently engaged in next-gen development.
