Avalanche Studios has opened a third office in Malm÷, Sweden, the Just Cause developer's third location worldwide.
The company was founded in Stockholm in 2003, and added a location in New York City in 2011. The Malm÷ studio will work on both current and future IPs, with a particular focus on, "relatively small and flexible projects which rest on a solid foundation of AAA production values and award-winning proprietary technology."
Avalanche has appointed Sara Ponnert as Malm÷'s studio manager. Ponnert previously worked in games publishing at Pan Vision and Sony Ericsson Mobile, and most recently worked as a business developer at Media Evolution.
A core team of Avalanche developers will relocate from Stockholm to Malm÷ to get the studio started.
"It's been hard to decide where to open our new studio," said Avalanche CEO Pim Holfve in a statement. "Sweden offers many locations with potential, but we feel that Malm÷ ticks all the boxes."
