Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios is rumored to be working on Just Cause 3, a third game in the series for PC and next-gen consoles.
Avalanche Studios is an independent, privately held video game developer based in Stockholm, Sweden. It was founded in March 2003 by Christofer Sundberg, Linus and Viktor Blomberg. They focuses on developing original intellectual properties for games and other media and base their projects on the Avalanche Engine.
In an interview with Eurogamer, Studio head Christofer Sundberg said, “We are set on becoming the best open world developer, that’s our ultimate goal. It’s a very competitive genre. Rockstar is more of a phenomenon than a competitor. What we can offer to the genre is diversity, which very few other open world developers can.”
Teasing the site, Sundberg stated that Just Cause franchise is “absolutely perfect for next generation consoles based on what we know so far”.
Avalanche Studios is currently working on three big projects – one original IP that could be Just Cause 3, and two licensed titles – while the New York studio is currently developing Project Mamba, slated for PC and consoles in 2014.
Avalanche won’t be moving away from open world games anytime soon, “We believe in the idea of continuing to build those big worlds with a lot of fun and crazy content to play around with,” Sundberg added.
“Open world game players are anarchists, just like us,” he continued, “It’s funny, when you tell a player in one of our games to go right, they always go left. Planning around that mindset, that you can never predict what the player will do, and always counting on the player to break your game, is quite interesting.”
Avalanche is doing its best to prepare for the future and the impending launch of the next PlayStation and Xbox, Sundberg concluded.
So, Just Cause 3 is set for next-gen. Do you think it’ll be the best in the franchise?
