You're a bit late. Just Cause 2 was announced quite a while ago. (Sorry man, it had to be said) Should be a good game anyway... FIRST SCREENSHOT. (http://www.avalanchestudios.se/images/AVA_RnD.jpg) I found that at the avalanche website... surely JC2? Because that is a really big city!

What we heard: Though not a raging success in North America, Just Cause has been fairing quite well in retail in the UK, where it stayed on the region's top 10 all-formats list for four weeks after its September release. This success was apparently enough of a sign to begin work on a sequel, according to Internet reports.

Gaming site Worthplaying.com cites an article in Swedish gaming magazine Kong, in which Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios (also from Sweden) apparently cops to a sequel's development. Worthplaying says Avalanche CEO Christofer Sundberg reveals that his studio is already working on a sequel and that the game will abandon the Far Cry-esque island paradise for a "VERY large city environment" (caps in original).

The game will also reportedly go multiformat again but this time will focus on the next generation--specifically the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Though taking translations from foreign publications often ends up in a game of "telephone," this bit of scuttlebutt is likely legitimate. Avalanche has a grand total of one game under its belt (Just Cause), and given the game's success and potential, it seems like a smart business move to pump out another one of Rico Rodriguez's adventures.

The official story: Eidos rep--"We don't have any comment on this as of yet."

Bogus or not bogus?: Officially? Bogus. Unofficially? Not Bogus.
