Everyone has a game in their library, that despite never being a massive success, they still loved. For Yolanda, that game is any new release of a farming simulation. For Geoff, it’s Amazing Spider-Man. For me? Just Cause 2, one of the cheesiest examples of a baysplosion, ever committed to a digital format. The second game came out in the dark age of 2010, and allowed players to attach a soldier to a speeding jet and then jump out of it while high above the planet. It was brilliant. And it looks like rumours of a third game were true. I think.
Here’s an image tweeted by Avalanche head Christofer Sundberg for a new game that the studio is working on. After firing Garth and using that hush money from Atari to hire and afford a detective, we discovered that Avalanche was the developer behind the previous Just Cause game. Also, that guy looks rather a lot like Rico Rodriguez, falling towards…something.
Avalanche has a bunch of games in the pipeline right now, and a third Just Cause could be the main event. And hell, I’m looking forward to it. Just so that I can see which actor Rico resembles in a third outing. JC1, he looked like Antonio Banderas. JC2, he kinda had an Al Pacino appearance. Maybe in the third game, he’ll have facial features matching that of Joe Viterelli.
