Avalanche, the Swedish team behind the Just Cause series, are currently working on three games. Two are licensed properties, while the other, codenamed “Project Mamba”, is likely to be a new Just Cause game.
Especially when you look at this blurry screenshot posted by studio founder Christofer Sundberg. While the outfit and setting could be anything from Indiana Jones to Mars, take a look at the character’s left hand. Yup. Sure looks like Just Cause‘s famous grappling hook to me.
The first two Just Cause games were set in lush tropical locations. Maybe a move to somewhere a little more arid is on the cards? Then again, if as seems possible this game is for next-gen systems, there’s nothing stopping a third Just Cause game to take place somewhere so vast it can have forests, deserts and everything in between. Especially since Just Cause 2 sort of tried that already.
