Today, Square Enix just officially announced that Just Cause 3 is in production at Avalanche Studios and coming out in 2015 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. There have been rumors that Avalanche has been working on the sequel, but the folks at Square Enix have been quiet about it until today.
“We’ve been waiting for this moment ever since Just Cause 2 was released, said Christofer Sundberg, founder and Chief Creative Officer at Avalanche Studios. “This is the culmination of a decade’s worth of open-world evolution and innovation. In Just Cause 3, we’ve sent Rico to a beautiful Mediterranean archipelago. He is of course bringing his Grapple and Parachute, both with game-changing upgrades, as well as the brand new Wingsuit. Just Cause 3 truly represents the next generation of chaotic sandbox fun, and we can’t wait to show you more next year.”
