Avalanche Studios today announced plans to expand its Stockholm studio by moving to a new space a few blocks away from its current location. The Mad Max developer said it will move into the 32,000-square-foot space atop a new building in the fall of 2015.
The new location was custom-designed by architectural firm Studio Sockholm, which attempted to merge Avalanche's "distinct outward attitude" with "a warm and welcoming working atmosphere." The building is also expected to receive LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum certification. Avalanche has signed a five-year lease for the space.
Avalanche currently employs 160 developers at its Stockholm headquarters. It also has more than 90 additional employees at its New York City studio, which was founded in 2011 and recently expanded. Avalanche is best known as the developer of the Just Cause franchise, but it has also released games like The Hunter and Renegade Ops.
