Avalanche Studios Is Developing Roguelike Game Called “Ravenbound”
The game is currently named Jackdaw, but it's understood that this is the codename of the project, with the final game being titled Ravenbound: Tales of Avalt.
When asked more about the game, Shaun Weber said “I would describe the game as kinda like Dead cells but open-world”.
It’s unclear when Ravenbound: Tales of Avalt will be revealed, but Weber had indicated that the game seems to be in a good state of development. So presumably, we could see the game in the very near future.
In June 2021, Avalanche Studios announced that it was working on a new open-world co-op game coming to Xbox Game Pass. Details on the game are slim, with the studio only providing small snippets of information via a short teaser trailer during last year’s Xbox & Bethesda showcase.
Excited to announce big new AAA Xbox Games Studios exclusive game we are making in partnership w/ the talented team at Avalanche Studios (team behind games like Just Cause). Contraband, a co-op smuggler’s paradise set in the fictional world of 1970s Bayan. https://t.co/G0sA9jctpN

In a follow-up tweet after the announcement, Microsoft‘s Aaron Greenberg said that the game is set in the 1970s in a fictional country called Bayan. Last week, Microsoft also filed new trademarks for Contraband.
