Debuting for Next-Gen, Current-Gen Consoles and PC in 2014
LONDON UK. – 11th June, 2013 – Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced Mad Max , a new open world, third-person action game where players become Mad Max, a lone warrior in a savage post-apocalyptic world where cars are the key to survival.

Scheduled for release in 2014, Mad Max will deliver dynamic, open-world gameplay where gamers fight to stay alive in The Wasteland, using brutal on-ground and vehicular combat against vicious gangs of bandits. Players are challenged with treacherous missions as they scavenge the dangerous landscape for supplies to build the ultimate combat vehicle.
“ Mad Max places gamers directly into the driver’s seat of their ultimate customized vehicle to battle it out in the action-packed, open world of The Wasteland,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production & Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “We are very pleased to work with Avalanche Studios to provide a next generation gaming experience with robust fighting paired with dynamic vehicular combat."
“Over a decade of creating open world experiences has led us to this point,” said Christofer Sundberg, Avalanche Studios Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer. “The Wasteland lends itself incredibly well to the high level of player freedom with which Avalanche Studios has become synonymous. This unforgiving environment inspired us to create a gritty and diverse experience where driving, fighting and scavenging are essential for survival.”

And Konami made the pachinko machine. (1 Hour ago)
I think that may have already happened :D (1 Hour ago)
imagine a board meeting at konami, downtown tokyo. "could you get a focus group together and find out where we should take our franchies from here?". Producer leaves for the nearest pachinko parlor. (2 Hours ago)
Activision isn't too much better, with the exception of Blizzard games. Ubisoft is maybe adapting better. (2 Hours ago)
I think publishers can miss the plot a bit too. I think EA is stuck between chasing trends and being stuck in sorta old ways. They need to figure out this market. (2 Hours ago)
and it would work on consoles too. Elite Dangerous with it's advanced controls were still able to work reasonably well on a gamepad. Giving the game a dynamic campaign built around story elements. (2 Hours ago)
I think giving one publisher exclusive rights to the license was probably a mistake. Sorta putting all your eggs in one basket. (2 Hours ago)
