Just Cause creator Christofer Sundberg has announced Liquid Swords, a new game development studio in Stockholm that’ll make open-world games.
In a report from Gamesindustry.biz, Avalanche Studios co-founder and Just Cause creator Christofer Sundberg has formed Liquid Swords, a new game studio in Stockholm.
“We have no intention of reshaping the world of storytelling as we know it,” said Sundberg. “Our road to leaving our mark and making a difference in the industry is built first and foremost on games that are immediately accessible and consistently rewarding.
Liquid Swords will work on open-world action games for next-gen consoles, PC, and streaming platforms. While the studio is headquartered in Stockholm, there will be several other locations around the world. Sundberg goes onto say that this new studio aims to make a creative and fun workplace that has a “no-nonsense, game development-focused approach.”
“I have loved player freedom and creativity ever since I first started making games and with Liquid Swords, I am confident we’ll provide the go-to games for fun entertainment for decades to come,” continues Sundberg.
