The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

We're Going To See Fewer Big-Budget Games And "That's A Good Thing," According To Just Cause Dev

Posted on Wednesday, April 3 @ 12:18:47 PST by Alex_Osborn


As we welcome in the next generation of gaming with more powerful hardware, the budgets required to develop games that truly take advantage of all that horsepower are naturally going to increase. As such, Avalanche Studios'CEO Stefan Ljungqvis believes we'll see fewer of them in the future, and that's a good thing.

Ljungqvis toldGamasutra:
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 forty first-person shooters. I don’t want to play them all, but maybe we need one, two or three.

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.


Do you agree withLjungqvis' claims? Would a decrease in the number of big-budget games ultimately be better for the industry? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
