Game Informer have today announced that Avalanche Studios are presently hard at work on the development of a new instalment of Just Cause, better known as their long-running saga of open-world action-adventure video games. Currently going by the ever-so-inspired title of Just Cause 3, the long-rumoured successor to 2010's similarly creatively-named second outing - we'll let our readership take an educated guess on this front - will launch exclusively on next-generation consoles in a similar vein to how its predecessor ditched the PlayStation 2 and Xbox in favour of the PS3, 360 and PC.
Once again, Avalanche appear to be refusing to play it safe in terms of the product's setting, relocating secret agent-turned-Super Mario-esque-platformer Rico Rodriguez to an endearingly warm Mediterranean island - we'd wager that James Bond envies him after having battled terrorists from the 'sanctity' of a rain-swept Scottish mansion in 2013 - for his third and potentially final mission. Details on the precise plot of next year's presumably-refined trilogy closer weren't forthcoming in Game Informer's initial reveal story earlier today, although that's not to say that the latest edition of the magazine in question - which will sport a nifty Just Cause 3-themed cover, if the image above wasn't an obvious enough indicator in that regard - won't reveal a few hidden secrets in the next few days, all of which will feature either here or in another On-Screen article if and when they reach the increasingly transparent surface of the interwebs...
Just Cause 3 rappels onto PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC consoles worldwide in 2015.
