Square Enix's corporate domain registrar registered a Just Cause 3 domain this week. Guess we'll see that at E3. http://t.co/5NSNpTS5nR— superannuation (@supererogatory) April 24, 2014
Just Cause 2 was set in Southeast Asia, on the fictional tropical island of Panau, which was very much inspired by Costa Rica. Although Avalanche never explicitly stated that its Cost Rican jungle research was for a new entry in the series, it regularly discussed its findings in the context of their importance to Just Cause.
"However, water is one of the most complicated things to simulate in movies and computer games. So, yesterday, we were down at the beach and we were recording the water in super slow motion. These are all really interesting questions that we're doing research about so that we can improve things for the future."
In February 2013, the LinkedIn profile of Avalanche CEO Christofer Sundberg revealed that the studio was working on two unannounced PS4 and Xbox One games, one of which was subsequently revealed to be Mad Max.
Sundberg later posted an image (pictured) of what appeared to be a new Just Cause game on Instagram, further suggesting a sequel is in the works.
