Just Cause 2 developer Avalanche Studios is working on a new military co-op vehicular shooter to be called Renegade Ops. The title, which has been whispered about for some time now, is a digital download-only offering that will be published and marketed by SEGA.
Renegade Ops is a strategic effort by SEGA to develop new IP that is targeted directly at the digital download market. The title will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC platforms when it arrives. If successful, look for SEGA to push to establish the title as new IP that will get additional offerings of both add-ons and new titles in the series.
The game itself is said to put players in a mobile commando unit to defeat elements of a sinister terrorist organization. The title will support two player co-op with split screen support for four player co-op over the Internet. Players will get to use a number of guns and have to deploy a number of strategies in order to be successful. No confirmed release date has been announced, beyond saying that it will arrive at some point later this year.
