Just Cause Developer Co-Founder Discusses Cancelled Iron Man Game

Sundberg exposes that Disney desired Avalanche to swiftly increase its personnel to complete the game under a reduced growth timeline. However, he rejected, discussing that doing so would certainly have placed an enormous pressure on the workshop.

“I was a mess by the end,” says Sundberg. “Shortening development time, increasing budgets. We would have to hire 70-80 people to the team that I would have had the responsibility to find a new project for, but the development time was shortened down so much. It would have broken the studio completely if we agreed to that.”

He proceeds by stating, “At the end of a project, when the team is scaling down, that’s when you find [a] new project. With one year of development time cut from the original plan, I had one year less to find a new project for a big development team which would have been impossible. And hiring all those developers would have been a nightmare. So it was for the best”

As much as Sundberg bears in mind, the game was disaffiliated from the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well as not connected to Iron Man 3, which remained in manufacturing during that time. He claims the game would certainly have enabled gamers to “just take off and fly anywhere” which it had a large concentrate on melee battle where gamers can punch personalities via wall surfaces utilizing Iron Man’s repulsors.
