The firm – now officially known as Avalanche Studios Group – is made up for three separate creative divisions, including Avalanche Studios, Expansive Worlds and Systemic Reaction.
In a statement, CEO Pim Holfve said:
“Transitioning to Avalanche Studios Group and its three divisions marks the start of a new era.
“Although we have expanded to three creative divisions, our singular focus is to bring immersive open world experiences to millions of players around the globe.”
The three teams have “several” games in development, including an “ominous and dangerous” unannounced title from Systemic Reaction.
There isn’t much known about the project – besides the fact it’s being worked on in Malmo, Sweden – but a teaser trailer has been released.
The three divisions carry some weight in the gaming industry, with Avalanche Studios being the team behind the ‘Just Cause’ series, having also worked on ‘Mad Max’ and ‘Rage 2’.
Expansive Worlds is best known for its efforts on free-to-play hunting game ‘The Hunter: Call of the Wild’, while Systemic Reaction is a self-publishing firm which worked on open-world action title ‘Generation Zero’.
