Just Cause 2 does well, expect a Just Cause 3

People “shouldn’t be surprised” when a Just Cause 3 announcement is eventually made, series developer Avalanche’s Christofer Sundberg says.

Following last week’s retail debut of Just Cause 2, the studio head says the Swedish studio is “absolutely interested” in working with the intellectual property again, adding: “The studio lives and breathes the Just Cause franchise, and handing that over to another developer would spoil it. No one has the attachment to this IP as we do.”

Just Cause 2 has been doing well so far; the title’s been collecting respectable review scores and debuted at the top of UK’s sales charts.

“Just seeing all those review scores coming in was fantastic,” he continued, “especially from the sites that scored the first Just Cause a little bit lower than we hoped.”

“That’s the most satisfying thing for us, but we’re delighted also that the game got to number one in the charts in the UK. It was released on the Thursday last week, so it’s great that the game’s going so well.”
