Avalanche Cranking On Mad Max 4?
The young'uns may not remember the "Max Max" movies but that's okay. The game might be bad-ass enough for everyone.
According to Giant Bomb, Mad Max 4: Fury Road might actually be in development at Just Cause developer, Avalanche Studios. The fourth Mad Max supposedly began pre-production in lat 2009, and producer-director George Miller said it would "take a year to build the cars used in the sequel." But there's another twist to all this- God of War II producer Cory Barlog has been linked to the game for a while, and in fact, he just confirmed that again on his Twitter page:
"I need a rockstar lead level girl or guy who is up for the challenge of making an amazing AAA Mad Max game."
"A heads up to all level designers, more specifically lead level designers. Want make a Mad Max game with me?"
Perhaps not coincidentally, Barlog has been visiting Avalanche's home base in Stockholm, Sweden and as the source indicates, Avalanche founder Christofer Sundberg re-Tweeted Barlog's messages. Furthermore, there was a May report saying Avalanche was working on "a major Hollywood license" that will be developed "alongside an upcoming 2012 movie." Well, all right. So what do you want more? Game or movie?
