they are rebranding as Avalanche Studios Group
that's subdivided into three units: Avalanche Studios, Expansive Worlds and a
new self-publishing brand called Systemic Reaction. Along with the news they
offer a Systemic Reaction
Unannounced Game Teaser Trailer
with a brief look at what seems like a
first-person shooter set in a cave, so we'll have to stay tuned for more on
that. Here's what they say about their new setup:
Avalanche Studios is
excited to announce the name change to Avalanche Studios Group and unveil its
new visual identity, including its three creative divisions, Avalanche Studios,
Expansive Worlds and Systemic Reaction, and teasing a new game.
The new identities are a modern update and reflect the entire Avalanche
Studios Group, leveraging the legacy and strong brand equity of its AAA partner
and outdoor games divisions Avalanche Studios (Just Cause, Rage 2) and Expansive
Worlds (theHunter: Call of the Wild), while establishing the self-publishing
brand Systemic Reaction (Generation Zero) to better mirror its unique offering.
– Since 2003 we have built a sustainable AAA business, and over the past five
years, we have broadened our portfolio with our self-published games.
Transitioning to Avalanche Studios Group and its three divisions marks the start
of a new era, says Pim Holfve, CEO of Avalanche Studios Group. Although we have
expanded to three creative divisions, our singular focus is to bring immersive
open world experiences to millions of players around the globe.

sale of Avalanche Studios Groups’ entire catalog of games and downloadable
content, including Just Cause 4, theHunter: Call of the Wild and Generation
Zero. Systemic Reaction also released a teaser trailer for a new game developed
– We want to celebrate this occasion by paying homage to our rich history of
open world games while also sharing a glimpse of what’s to come, says Pim
Holfve. We have several games in development, and this is just the beginning of
what promises to be another exciting decade for the entire Avalanche Studios
