Xbox Underground claims that it has stumbled across legitimate screenshots of Just Cause 3. The highly anticipated sequel of last generation’s open-world shooter, Just Cause 2, has been rumored to be in development for a really long time, so the timing for a leak is really overdue in that regard.
The website claims that the screenshots come from a debug copy of the Xbox One version game. Everything seems to fall into place with the ability to buy vehicles, massive landscapes, and of course Just Cause’s penchant for one man action. Seriously, each of those enemy soldiers are going to be trailing through the sky behind a harrier jet any second.
The only qualms I have is that Rico Rodriguez doesn’t seem to be our lead protagonist in this outing. Maybe that is him firing those pistols, but the haircut and facial structure look like an entirely different person. Could Rico have passed the reigns over to another agent, or will Just Cause 3 give you the chance to create your own? That would be nice.
Just a rumor for now, but maybe we’ll be hearing from developer Avalanche Studios within the coming days. Officially, the company is busy at work developing Mad Max right now, so this would be the first we’ve heard from Just Cause 3 a this point.
