Earlier today, information was allegedly discovered that would reveal the Mad Max game release window. On the LinkedIn profile of developer Avalanche Studios’ Christofer Sundberg, it was stated that the company’s first movie license would “release in April 2014.”
Currently, the license known for its Mel Gibson movies is the only one that’s documented to be in production by the studio. It would release on next generation consoles in 2014 under the Warner Bros banner.
The game would feature high-octane gameplay in a similar fashion known from the developer’s most popular title, Just Cause. Players can drive in a post-apocalyptic desert setting, shoot down enemies, go down zip lines and explode a ton of things.
Mad Max is currently headed to Xbox One and Playstation 4, but also still services PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
Speaking of Just Cause, there may also be a third, unannounced iteration on the way. The same LinkedIn profile mentions the following, branded by the game’s publisher, Square Enix:
New installment in a very well-known game series. The game is being developed at Avalanche Studios New York studio and is scheduled for completion in June 2015 for next generation console platforms.
Just Cause is the studios’ only “series” to speak of, since it only worked on one-off titles for its other projects, with Renegade Ops and The Hunter.
Gameplay in Just Cause is widely regarded as some of the most compelling open world content out there, leaving behind most of the pretense for story lines to focus on crazy action. Many fans of the series spend countless hours just trying out outlandish ideas.
