Avalanche Software, the developer behind Disney Infinity, has officially been re-established under Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. John Blackburn, former head of Avalanche, will be returning with his team to work on a video game adaption of the upcoming Pixar film Cars 3.
Apparently, WB has also obtained the rights for Avalanche’s Octane Engine, which was used in Disney Infinity. David Haddad, President of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment welcomed the studio in the following statement, “It is a tremendous pleasure to welcome Avalanche Software into our development stable, and we look forward to working with our new team, Pixar Animation Studios, and DCPI to create Cars 3 based on the upcoming film and hugely popular franchise.” Haddad continued on adding, “The Avalanche talent and technology are a great addition to our group of outstanding developers, and we are excited for this Cars 3 game as well as all of the future games the team will create under John’s leadership.”
The Cars 3 game is currently schedule for a release in 2017, although no systems have been announced as of yet. This isn’t the first time Avalanche has worked with the Cars franchise, however, as they also developed the adaption of Cars 2 as well as the Cars character pack for Disney Infinity.
