Just Cause director: Fewer AAA titles will be released on next-gen consoles

Just Cause 2Avalanche Studio creative director, Stefan Ljungqvist, believes that fewer triple-A titles will be released on next-gen consoles.

"I don't think big-budget games are going away. There's going to be less of them. But that's a good thing, because maybe we don't need 40 first-person shooters. I don't want to play them all, but maybe we need one, two or three."

"What I like now is that there are more opportunities to be creative," he added. "Maybe over the course of the past five years, developers have pitched creative or more artistic games, but publishers had been more careful of betting a lot on those games, because they're associated with some risk. But maybe now they can [take more risks] because they need to be more unique in the marketplace."

Avalanche Studio is known for its open world action adventure game series, Just Cause.
