“When will you make Just Cause 3?"
We’ve lost count of the times we’ve been asked that question in the last few years. No matter if we’ve issued a press release about building a new studio, sponsored some event or posted photos of food to our personal Instagram accounts – the most frequent topic of conversation has somehow always been Rico and his huge sandbox world filled with crazy emergent gameplay.
Well, we’re beyond excited to finally unveil Just Cause 3 to the world! In a massive 12 page blowout, Game Informer are sharing their impressions after hours of exclusive hands-on time with the game. Rico is also gracing their cover, where he’s leaping from a building while firing his grapple mid-air, surrounded by helicopters and fighter jets. It’s an artist’s rendition, but the scenario could just as easily have been created in-game – the chaotic diorama is exactly what Just Cause is all about.
Following last week's rumours and speculation, we also wanted to take the opportunity to address a few misconceptions. Those leaked screenshots were taken from an ancient version of Just Cause 3. Like most games, this one went through an exploratory phase where we looked at different control schemes, different technologies, different business models. Those leaked screenshots show aspects of that process, and in no way reflect the game we are making today.
