Square Enix has enough faith in the Avalanche Studios franchise to fund a Just Cause 5. The information was provided by the Japanese publisher during a meeting with its investors.
Square Enix has betrayed two of its Tomb Raider and Deus Ex licenses, but not all. The Just Cause 5 “pre-announcement” made by the publisher serves as proof.
A new Just Cause 5 game is coming
Between two words about its financial health, Square Enix updated its shareholders on its future projects. And among them, a new Just Cause game
We’ve re-imagined our studio and games portfolio with to intensify our range of online securities What We develop for the North American and European market. We want to focus on developing new games that fit our strategy, especially by developing apps based on new franchises. The Just Cause license stays with us and we are currently working on developing a new title in this series..
The new games should perhaps correlate with the studios that Square Enix wants to create. No further details about Just Cause 5 for the time being, but it should only be released on PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC. The Avalanche Studios teams have their hands full.
Operation “to restore the image of the series”
Just Cause 4’s launch was disastrous to say the least. Many found the formula to be pretty damn round-robin, and most importantly, the game was launched in an extremely problematic state. The many concerns have earned the title a Metacritic score of 65/100 on the press side and 4.8/10 on the player side. If Square Enix and Avalanche Studios want to restore the brand’s image, we need to roll up our sleeves.
Since the publisher mentions online gaming, will this be the case with this new Just Cause? With or without NFT?
