Avalanche Studios, having recently opened up new offices in New York, have just announced that work is underway on a secretive title known as 'Project Mamba', that won't see the light of day until 2014. This probably means it'll be a next-gen title, which is all very exciting indeed.
We've got some serious love for Avalanche, what with Just Cause 2 and Renegade Ops being utterly brilliant games, stuffed with the mechanics of sheer enjoyment. S with a three-year development cycle, and some serious talent at the helm, we'll have high hopes for this one.
The game is being developed at the new NY studio, with former Activision and Atari executive David Grijns heading things at the American offices.
'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 founder Christofer Sundberg.
'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.'
The smart money would be on a new outing for our paragliding, death-defying, mega-man Rico, but we'll have to wait and see. Either way, check out our Just Cause 2 review, if you haven't already. [via EG]
