Rumour: Just Cause 3 May Crash a Jumbo Jet into PS4 Pretty Soon

Posted by Sammy Barker

Why? Just 'cause

Atrocious voice acting and over-the-top antics could be about to take a turbulent turn to the PlayStation 4, as Square Enix has registered a Just Cause 3 domain name. Online sleuth Superannuation spotted the registration, which presumably hints at an impending E3 announcement. The online destination was purchased earlier this week by the organisation’s corporate registrar.

Of course, it’s no real secret that Swedish outfit Avalanche Studios is working on a follow-up to its outrageously entertaining PlayStation 3 sandbox. Company boss Christofer Sundberg currently lists a “new instalment in a very well known game series” on his public Linked In profile, and adds that the unannounced title has been in production since August 2011 for next generation systems such as the PS4.

The executive’s also been more than eager to talk about the Just Cause series explicitly in the past, describing it as a “perfect” match for Sony’s latest super machine. “In this day and age, when everyone is struggling to make money, my opinion is that the Just Cause property is perfect for everything that next-gen has to offer,” he told Eurogamer.net before the new consoles were even announced.

The sequel is reportedly in production at the firm’s New York branch, while its Stockholm headquarters polish up Mad Max, which is set to release later this year. Would you grapple onto another adventure starring Rico Rodriguez? How do you think that the developer could possibly topple the asinine insanity of its previous title?

Just Cause 3 will be a definite day 1 purchase for me, in the most special special edition available...as will be Mad Max. Just Cause 2 was one of my absolute favorite games of last gen. I sank 140 hours or so into the game and didn't even finish the campaign...I just had so much fun messing around on the island and soak in the gorgeous graphics.

So I can't wait for anything open world Avalanche will release. Even if JC3 is just more of the same, that would be cool with me.

@Reverend_Skeeve Seconded!

Easily one of the funniest most entertaining series' available.
Nothing better than parachuting into the air force base and stealing the planes while being shot at by SAMs and dudes!
Epic series.

Agree with the comments. Just Cause 2 was one of the biggest benchmarks in sandbox gaming. Unbelievably fun.

Mad Max and JC3 are two of my most wanted games.

Just Cause 2, right now, is a well-optimized PC game, at least on my old laptop. Hopeful that Just Cause 3 follows suite for the PS4. The amount of fun to be had in the game is unrivaled. I barely touched the single player story, just bombed around enjoying all the locations and vehicles.

Never tried it, which I'm sad about. It seems right up my alley, tho. I don't think I'd miss much starting with 3, eh?

I still need to play my PS2 copy of Just Cause 1, and then buy Just Cause 2...but I'll definitely buy JC3 if this turns out to be real.

When Just Cause 3 hits the PS4, I won't hesitate to buy that game. JC 2 was awesome, while some things were repeated a bit, it was still an amazing game
