Avalanche Studios has finally officially announced that they are currently developing Just Cause 3, and it will not be a free-to-play game as has been rumoured previously.
This announcement comes four years after Just Cause 2 was released, and reveals that Just Cause 3 will be an open world shooter and will launch sometime next year for both the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the PC.
This was announced by the Avalanche co-founder and chief creative officer Christofer Sundberg who explains the new title with the following statement:
“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.”
“It will be distributed as a retail box and digital download. It is not a Free To Play game. It does not feature in-game micro-transactions.”- “Beyond launch, we are likely to look into DLC packs and items as part of our ambition to support Just Cause 3 and its players for many years to come, but until that time we’re completely focused on making the best Just Cause game we possibly can. Rest assured it will be a huge, fully packed and extremely rewarding experience right out of the gate.”
