One day after it was discovered that a brand protection company used by Square Enix privately registered a domain name for Just Cause 3, series developer Avalanche Studios has teased that it will make an official announcement of some kind very soon.

"We have very exciting stuff that we'll be ready to show shortly," Avalanche Studios founder Christofer Sundberg said on Twitter. "Thank you all for your patience."

The "exciting stuff" Sundberg is referring to may not even be a third entry in the Just Cause series. After all, Square Enix registered Just Cause 4 domain names in 2012, and of course nothing ever came of that. Still, Just Cause 3 is rumored to be on display during E3 2014 this summer.

Avalanche has a number of a projects in the works. In addition to a new game to be published by Square Enix (believed to be Just Cause 3), the company is working on a new Mad Max game and a title based on a comic book franchise. Avalanche is also producing an unannounced mobile game.

I just hope they hire better actors this time around. The voice acting in the last one was so bad that I literally dreaded doing story missions just because I had to listen to the characters other than Rico (though he didn't sound that great either) talk.

Otherwise it was a great game. I also hope they add more destructible buildings in the next one. You could only destroy specifically marked structures in 2. They should make it similar to Mercenaries where you can literally level an entire city including the largest skyscrapers if you were determined enough.

Da Reeeeaaapaaas Comraaaaaaade...

I won't buy this shit. It always had very good graphic but in essence is an idiot game for idiot people.

Nice. Just cause 2 was a great game. Could have done with some dangerous animals though to take away the loneliness of the wilderness and also the cities could be a bit more bustling. Otherwise its one of the most fun games ever made.

Couldn't care less.Just cause 2 was great for the first 2-4 hours,having the whole beautiful island to wreak havoc upon, but it quickly became boring since the story was a joke and the voice acting was horrible. Half way through the game I couldn't take it anymore and I've abandoned it.

Explosion sound effects in JC2 was top notch. I think it is even better than GTAV

<< LINK REMOVED >> Explosions in JC2 are by far the most exciting I have seen/heard in 20+ years of gaming and have yet to be bested.

Maybe Just Cause 4 will be shown instead. And Just Cause 3 will silently show up in stealth mode. And nobody will care, because they're already waiting for Just Cause 5.

I've enjoyed JC2 a LOT more than GTA IV + expansions. Only when GTA V came out did it top JC2.

That game JC2 had the BEST open world sandbox experience - driving, biking, flying, boating etc. but the absolute best was hooking up the dual parachute thrusters and just gliding around the island taking in the breath taking vistas...

That game in 3D on a wall 3D projector is simply a mesmerizing experience...

@fanirama One of the best engines too imo (ignoring the spinny sprite trees). Coming over the crest of a hill and finding the rocket launch base was amazing, and it had a real sense of scale and height to the point where it made my stomach turn a few times. I haven't got that from any other game. And it was 100x more fun than FC3.

<< LINK REMOVED >> GTA IV will always be better it has a much better story line much better characters and its city feels "alive" and like all GTA games they go into a lot of detail within the city and the game itself just cause 2 may have more mindless things to do in it then GTA IV but GTA IV will always be overall a much better game there is much more to games then just mindless fun such as story line

GTA IV sucked ass imo. It's the FIRST GTA that I didn't bother completing because it bored me with its story & Niko Bellic is a boring protagonist. I stopped caring about the campaign after the Bank mission with Packie.

GTA V has a better campaign (due to the missions) albeit a short one but nothing has beaten GTA San Andreas so far.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> Yes Liberty city had a soul that no other game has ever had (even GTA V). Can you imagine GTA IV-like cities within Just Cause 2? I would never have to buy another game.

JC2 was an awesome game, the way a game should be. Hopefully when JC3 hits the store the buildings will be renewable. It was a little bit bland when there was nothing left to destroy, which i enjoyed a lot.
