Paul Rutstchynsky is no illustrious stranger in the video game industry: this developer has a big resume since we owe him the famous MotorStorm, once the spearheads of PlayStation 3 (by the way, did you know fans resurrected multiplayer from the very first episode?), but also a certain DRIVECLUB, which had been talked about at the launch of the PlayStation 4. Alas, the latter will not have managed to last and Rutstchynsky will have finally migrated to another car game, the interesting ONRUSH, which despite a certain ingenuity will have led to the death of his studio.
Our man will therefore have gone to Slightly Mad Studios to direct Project CARS 3, latest episode of the car simulation series: we have to believe that he still has not found the shoe to his feet since in 2024, he announced to join Avalanche Studios Group. A sacred journey which will soon lead to a new, still mysterious game, the nature of which is slowly starting to take shape.
It’s certain Twitter that Paul Rutstchynsky indulged in an interesting statement: yes, he works well on an unreleased track… But don’t expect the sequel to any of its previous apps. As a matter of fact, this future project will not even have an eye on the side of the race!
To answer some hypotheses, I am not working on a racing game. Sorry, no sequel to DRIVECLUB, MotorStorm successor or ONRUSH project. It’s something very different from anything I’ve worked on before.
This inevitably arouses curiosity. Would it be on an action-adventure game? A narrative game? Or a fully multiplayer game, why not free-to-play? We remind you that Avalanche Studios Group has several three divisions, including those behind the Just Cause and RAGE 2 games (the latter having been co-developed by id Software). In 2024, the organization therefore opened a new studio in Liverpool for which Rutstchynsky is responsible, with this game which will be officially unveiled in 2024… The forecasts are open.
