Avalanche Puts Development of Steampunk Sandbox Game on Hold

Remember those images Avalanche posted on Instagram? The ones we guessed may have been Mad Max: Fury Road or Just Cause 3? Apparently, they related to neither. Instead they were from a steampunk sandbox game upon which Avalanche has ceased production.
That’s according to chief creative officer Christofer Sundberg, the chap that originally posted the images. He told Edge that, “they were from a steampunk-style game we had in development that we put on ice.”
“I really love that art style,” he continued, “and to combine it with sandbox gameplay is a dream of mine. Fortunately, being an independent developer I can control my own destiny and we’ll make something in that world sooner or later.”
So what is Avalanche working on then?
“We are developing for both current and next-gen,” said Sundberg, “but the earliest we’ll be able to talk about it and go into any detail is after the games we are working on are announced.”
“We’re also announcing new, interesting tech development that we do internally, but that is not until later this year.”
