Christofer Sundberg from Avalanche Studios, developer of Just Cause and Renegade Ops, has said his recent teasing images via Instagram were of a "steampunk-style game" they had in mind.

Of course in the next breathe he then proceeds to rip our steampunk loving hearts out by declaring it 'on ice', until further notice. Being an independent studio at least means they can revisit it.

Christofer Sundberg, co-founder of Avalanche, says there are different definitions for 'triple-A'. Most assume it's to do with "big budgets and huge risks," but for Sundberg it's a "stamp of quality."

The Just Cause developer says you "don't have to develop, bigger more expensive games." It's a matter of priorities, he notes, saying you can just "make better games." Bigger isn't always better.

Just Cause and Renegade Ops developer Avalanche Studios is very pleased with Sony's decision to include a beefy 8GB of RAM in their latest PlayStation designs. The PS4 will "out-power most" PC rigs.

Specifically it's the 8GB GDDR5 RAM that's packed into the AMD APU, which combines CPU and GPU into a single chipset. This tech will likely stay ahead of the majority of PCs "for years to come."

Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios will be pulling the sheet off a new project this E3 for fans to feast their eyes on, but it isn't a Just Cause or a Renegade Ops sequel.

It's a licensed property but not movie-based as they "aren't particularly interested" in that field, says CEO Christofer Sundberg. Tie-in's make for "crappy games" overall.

Syndicate reboot developer Starbreeze Studios has a PlayStation Network title in the pipeline at their Swedish offices, which is a "self-financed thing going on" at the studio.

Big developers need to understand how to "utilise the new medium, so to speak," and build something for PSN and not do "a big game." It's the "hardest part" to adjust down to something small.
