Rage 2 Developed By Mad Max, Just Cause Devs Confirms Marketing Leak
Following an early semi-confirmed leak, Rage 2 was officially revealed with an especially insane trailer. The footage teased a colorful new approach to the original game with plenty left to reveal. Whoever was tasked with making the sequel had been notably absent from the initial trailer, but those mystery Rage 2 developers have now been officially revealed.
The official Rage 2 website, of all places, is where the reveal took place. While the English version didn’t hold many secrets, changing the site’s language setting to anything other than English or Japanese apparently unveiled the actual co-developers: series helmers Avalanche Studios and DOOM’s id Software. The official Rage Twitter account confirmed the news, while humorously telling the marketing department to “stop leaking” their own game.
Hey marketing, here are a few notes. Can't blame Canada this time. pic.twitter.com/E38PjUD8Jd

Having the thrilling Just Cause 3 and Mad Max under their belt, Avalanche Studios seem more than suited to handle Rage’s second outing of open-world madness. Having the additional expertise of DOOM developers id Software on board almost guarantees more of the glorious shooting mechanics we’ve come to expect. Avalanche expressed their excitement about the team-up as well as tomorrow’s upcoming gameplay reveal on Twitter.
The rumors are true (and wow, have there been some rumors lately…) #RAGE2 is happening! We’ve teamed up with the shooter Gods at @idSoftware on this beast of a game, and can't wait for you to see it. Reveal trailer here, gameplay reveal tomorrow! https://t.co/fU2lyMXkP7
