Square Enix has revealed Just Cause 3 for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.Avalanche Studios is returning to develop this open-world action-adventure title. It will see Just Cause 2 protagonist Rico deployed in a Mediterranean archipelago. The game will introduce a wingsuit for traversal, and bring back Just Cause stalwarts — the parachute and grapple-hook — albeit with “vastly improved…mechanics.”
“We’ve been waiting for this moment ever since Just Cause 2 was released,” said Avalanche Studios’ founder and Chied Creative Officer Christofer Sundberg, “This is the culmination of a decade’s worth of open-world evolution and innovation.”
Just Cause 2 was released in 2010, and was well-received for the chaotic sandbox it offered. It spawned a fan-made mod adding multiplayer functionality, which was eventually integrated into the game proper.
Further Just Cause 3 details will be announced over the next month in partnership with Game Informer, culminating with the magazine’s December issue.
