AAA project underway in SoHo.

Avalanche Studios, developer of the Just Cause series, has opened a 10,000 square foot office in New York City’s SoHo district.

The studio involves staff from its Stockholm headquarters, and is being headed by former Activision and Atari executive David Grijns. It’s currently developing its first AAA title, codenamed “Project Mamba,” which is due for release in 2014.

“Today is a great day for Avalanche Studios as we have achieved yet another goal by establishing a new studio in the greatest city in North America,” commented founder Christofer Sundberg.

“We are one of the few independent, AAA-budget studios remaining in the world after the disastrous economic recession of the last few years. While this was a huge wake-up call for everyone in our industry, we have prepared for this expansion for over three years and it is a great feeling to execute our plans with such resounding success.”

Thanks, Eurogamer.

      @yencid: Word. It’d allow me to visit them more often.

      Speaking of Rockstar though—their publishing HQ is here, but they don’t develop titles in NYC.
