Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced that a Cars 3 game is in development, based on the upcoming Disney Pixar film and shifting into gear this year.
This will be developed by Avalanche Software, the studio behind the ill-fated Disney Infinity series, after it has been reopened under the publisher.
The studio will be led by John Blackburn, and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has obtained the rights to the Octane engine technology that will be used to develop the Cars 3 game.
“It is a tremendous pleasure to welcome Avalanche Software into our development stable, and we look forward to working with our new team, Pixar Animation Studios, and DCPI to create Cars 3 based on the upcoming film and hugely popular franchise,” comments Waner Bros. Interactive Entertainment president, David Haddad.
“The Avalanche talent and technology are a great addition to our group of outstanding developers, and we are excited for this Cars 3 game as well as all of the future games the team will create under John’s leadership.”
Cars 3 can be seen as the latest children and family gaming collaboration between The Walt Disney Company and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, which has previously seen them work together on LEGO games.
