Rumours circulating from Xbox World magazine that Just Cause 3 could be releasing next year have been quashed by the series’ developer.
In the rumour section of the mag’s latest issue it states:
“Our spies say devs Avalanche are hard at work as we speak, and that it’s set for release next year.”
However, those rumours have seemingly been dispelled by Avalanche studio head Christofer Sundburg in an interview with Eurogamer:
“It’s just a rumour and we’re not releasing any game in 2012.”
Sundburg had previously stated that the studio is keen on making a follow up to the 2010 chart topper so a possible sequel wouldn’t have come as shock to many.
Let’s hope that one day Avalanche will get back to the series and program entirely new ways to stand on moving aeroplanes and tumble down cliffs comically, but sadly it ain’t happening yet.
