"That was not fun. I think they had to let the half of the studio go, over a night because of the economic collapse. The publisher cancelled all their games except one, and it was a big publisher. But had been working on this awesome open-world game set in an alternative reality version of 1950s. It was insane! We had a huge this huge version of London that looked spectacular. We didn't have skyscrapers, but we had, like inverted heights, so the city grew downwards, to the ground. You could fly ziplines, airships, planes and jump down to these really, really deep holes in the middle of the city. So it was visually, and world-building wise spectacular and It had some really great gameplay ideas." Unfortunately, the game was cancelled because it needed another two years of development during those hard times of Avalanche.
Why do we miss out on such gems?

"steampunk open-world game in an alternative history of the 1950s of London."

That sounds awesome, and of course it's cancelled. *Sigh*

Looks interesting. Microsoft or Sony could help (€€€) with this game's development.

BTW, wouldn't mind a Mad Max sequel from Avalanche.

It sucks when games get canceled especially if they’re bringing something unique to the market.

Yeah they scrapped this and then made just cause 4 and probably 5 which are getting worse and a step back in every new entry that releases.. just cause 4 was an abomination the only good game this company has made in recent times is mad max and just cause 2 was pretty good for the time
