This video feature was originally published on November 21st, 2014, but we wanted to resurface it with the impending release of Avalanche New York's Just Cause 3.

While Avalanche Studios co-founder Christofer Sundberg doesn't like to draw a distinction between the original studio in Stockholm and the new branch, the developers in Avalanche Studios New York are on a larger mission than to just make a fun game with Just Cause 3. Born and raised in the city, Avalanche New York's general manager David Grijns has always wanted to change New York City's reputation as being inhospitable to game development. So how does one studio hope to override a decades-long trend of little to no triple-A game development in America's largest and most iconic city?

Watch the video below to learn more about the history of Avalanche Studios New York, developing Just Cause 3, and their long-term play to revolutionize New York's reputation in the game industry.
