Eidos is one of the world’s leading developer’s and publisher’s. Swedish based Avalanche Studios specializes in the creation of unique and pioneering gaming concepts with its very own proprietary technology. Add them both together, and you get what can only be a smash-mouth partnership that should benefit gamers across the globe.
The first game due out of the pipeline for Eidos is entitled [i]Just Cause[/i], and is due out for PC and consoles sometime in 2005. “Avalanche Studios offers a great fit to Eidos’ product strategy of developing original content utilizing ground-breaking technology,” says Martin Alltimes, head of European external development at Eidos. “Building on the excellent work to date, I am confident this relationship will produce an exceptional game.”
“We are very proud to be part of the Eidos developer network,” says Christofer Sundberg, director of Avalanche. “Eidos is a strong and ambitious publisher with a long history of releasing AAA titles and making blockbusters out of original content. Our ambition is to build a long term relationship with our publishing partner, and Eidos has already proven to be an excellent choice.”
