Not to be confused with Avalanche Software, it's an independent, privately held video games developer based in Stockholm, Sweden. It was founded in March 2003 by Christofer Sundberg, Linus Blomberg and Viktor Blomberg. Avalanche Studios focuses on developing original intellectual properties for games and other media and base their projects on the Avalanche Engine (link to wikipedia). The Avalanche Engine (link to this wiki) is a unique game technology, powering landscapes in explicit detail.

It was reported on 24 October 2008 that 77 employees were laid off due to Avalanche losing two publishing contracts.

24 March Avalanche announced that they have formed a new development studio called Expansive Worlds which is the casual and online games division with a strong focus on community-driven subscription-based titles.
