Nordisk Film acquires Just Cause 3 developer Avalanche Studios

Avalanche Studios, the developer behind Just Cause 3 and the upcoming Rage 2, has been snapped up by Danish distribution outfit Nordisk Film.

Crucially, Avalanche has revealed that it will remain 'creatively independent' following the 'historic' $103 million deal, with co-founders Christofer Sundberg and Linus Blomberg remaining at the company.

Things will continue to tick along pretty much as normal, albeit with Nordisk chief Mikkel Weider joining the board and Avalanche having gained additional financial stability.

Nordisk's acquisition of Avalanche Studios is expected to be finalised by the end of next month.

As mentioned, Avalanche is currently working on Rage 2 in a collaborative effort with id Software, although there's murmurs that it's also beavering away on a fourth instalment in the Just Cause series.

'This is a milestone in our 15 year long history,' said Sundberg. 'We started from nothing and have built this incredible company, thanks to a team of exceptionally talented people. With Nordisk Film as the owner of the studio, we will expand our creative horizons. I look forward to continuing our long and successful relationships with the best publishers in our industry, as well as creating new games under our own Avalanche Studios publishing label.'
