Just Cause Developer Teases Future Projects

Early concepts for a future game are "crazy," the developer says.

Christofer Sundberg, founder and creative director at Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios, has hinted that the studio is working on interesting and "crazy" projects.

Sundberg recently took to Twitter to express his excitement at the future of the studio. "I love the early concept stages of a game," he wrote. "That's when true creativity comes out and we create miracles. Get ready! Crazy sh** in the works."

In April, Square Enix registered a domain for the long-awaited Just Cause 3. Sundberg immediately followed up by explaining that the studio would announce "exciting stuff" soon. Nothing else has been heard about the property since then.

Avalanche is also developing a Mad Max game based on the movie series that was recently delayed to 2015, and a game based on a comic book series that isn't Superman.

(with barely contained disgust, in Elcor voice) Just cause 2...no one cares. Stop trying to be relevant, you had  your 15 minutes, time to let go now. Got it for free on xbox live, played it for 5 minutes...got bored of the dumb dialogue and racist stereotypes. Seriously clean up your act if you release just cause 3. Better yet  change the name to Just Sauce, heartburn guaranteed. LOL

JC3 is a day 1 buy for me, the real question will be for which of my consoles to buy it for, PS4 or Xb0ne?

Gamespot (not fanboys) could you help me out?

JUST CAUSE 3 for next-gen(or current gen,whatever helps you sleep at night)

At least the game knows what "fun" means instead of ditching fun for realism!

I read the article twice and still can't see the purpose of it. JC3 or GTFO.

JC2 is one of those special games that made last gen great.  It did many things really well and the best example of what open world should be.  Explosions had very weak shock waves (except pipelines of course) but that was the only flaw.

Just Cause 2 is one of the few open-world games that does it right. 


Why would I be given a huge open-world then forced into a narrative structure that spends half the game as a tutorial/mini-game seminar and the other half shoving the player into rigid mission structures?


Just Cause 2 told me "Go blow up whatever you like, and when you hit a certain limit of chaos you can play a mission. Or, you know, keep blowing stuff up." That's why I come back to it time and again: I can do what I like and engage missions when I like.

Just Cause 2 was very underrated, I had a blast playing it. Lots of cool vehicles, probably the best video game helicopters ever.

@charlesdao Yeah thats one problem :/...We are not expecting an academy award quality like storytelling but they could at least have a manageable one right?

@RedWave247 Thats what I thought while playing the whole game.


Why can I jump onto a moving car? Just 'cause.

Why can I grapple onto a moving plane? Just 'cause.


And that is why JC2 is one of my favourite games!

@homey_d_clown If you ask fanbois they will over exaggerate it beyond measure and imagination against the platforms they don't own or dislike..

Just Cause 2 never really favored one platform over the other(although the PC version of JC2 has some amazing mods and expect some massive modding support for the PC version of JC3)...

But like with all the games for the new-gen cycles there is again a strong possibility that the PS4 might outperform Xbox by a few notches.

Well if you own a PS4 and XONE both its easy to recommend the PS4 version but if you only have an XONE,buy it there and don't give two shits on what fanbois say.

@redskinStu Er n o. In no way shape or form was Just Cause 2 under-rated. Literally every gamer and reviewer raved about it.

@MJ12-Conspiracy Im looking forward to it too. This company made Just Cause, right? So there is a nice chance Max Max wont be so terrible game. Looks like developers know, how to make players interested in exploring and stuff, since I understand Max Max should be open world game. Ofcourse Im not expecting anything grand, but who knows, it might be not a terrible game.

@MJ12-Conspiracy I am looking forward to Mad Max but also preparing for a huge letdown :).  It's likely it will be a very plain typical action game intended to capitalize on the movie, even though they are not connected.  I'm not saying it'll be purely a quick and bad movie cash in game, it's probably been in the works for over 2yrs already, I'm just not expecting it to really hit with hardcore Mad Max fans.

@ERRMAHGERD @bigg_p @Saidrex  The largest conceivable Minecraft map is 4,700,000,000,000,000 square kilometers rounded down. 4.7 quadrillion. Earth falls a bit short of that at around 510 million, and Daggerfall barely breaks six digits at 161,000. Gonna have to give this one to Sai, I think.
