It appears that Square Enix is readying its media machine to promote a third Just Cause game. Square Enix's corporate domain registrar purchased 'justcause3game.com' earlier this week. Also EuroGamer suggests the production of Just Cause 3 is an "open secret," with heavy hints of its development and progress coming from series developer Avalanche Studios boss Christofer Sundberg.

The 'justcause3game.com' domain was registered on Tuesday by CSC Corporate Domains, a company used by Square Enix for these kinds of duties in the past. It's been a rather long time since Just Cause 2 was released (2010) and the rumour mill has previously ground out tales of upcoming Just Cause titles in the years since then. In 2012 it was well reported that Just Cause 4 domains were registered and since then nothing has emerged, of course.

When quizzed about Just Cause 3, in December 2013, Sundberg told Gamespot that it was "too early to talk about it just yet". So perhaps we are now approaching that time. It was also previously stated by Sundberg that Just Cause was a "perfect" game series for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Now those consoles are established it might be time to make the move and ready the game for launch.

Avalanche Studios is currently beavering away on a Mad Max game and Disney Infinity. But is the project codenamed 'Mamba', thought to be Just Cause 3, going to come along this year for PC and next gen consoles and be under the spotlight at the E3 show in June? The Twitter domain registration sleuth SupperAnnuation seems to think so.

If it's @E3 then does that suggest an autumn (/fall) launch for the game itself - say late October/early November?

If it was a “console exclusive” then that'd be a strong incentive to me to get a “next gen console” (probably PS4 because I'm really hacked off with Microsoft).

Big fan of JC and more especially JC2, so JC3 would definitely be on my “must buy” list. Heck, they can have my pre-order now.
I'm another Just Cause fan, steam says i've put 100 hours into JC2 and I must have played about 80 hours on the 360 version of JC1. So count me in for a sale if its on its way, although I'll wait for the reviews first rather than preorder.
Really enjoyed Just Cause 2, looking forward to a third.
Here is hoping they keep the game play like JC2 but shrink the map and fill it with…..stuff, JC2 was to big and to bland
Normally choose PC as main platform, but got Just Cause 2 on PS3 and put over 120 hours into it. One of my favourite games ever, they can pretty much count me in already. Would have been nice if GTA had the levels of helicopter/plane control of JC, really struggled with GTA IV and now V!
