I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

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 Eastern 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 told Gamasutra:

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