A domain for Just Cause 3 has been filed, it was revealed yesterday.
Spotted by Superannuation, the filing was made on the 22nd April this year by CSC Corporate Domains, Inc – a company that Square Enix, and other studios, use to register domains.
Whether the registration of the domain points to a third instalment in the action-adventure series or is just Square Enix protecting their property remains to be seen but has sent rumours swirling that a new game is in production.
In 2012, Square Enix registered domains for Just Cause 4 but no announcements have since been made.
The first Just Cause game launched in 2006 to positive reviews and as of 2009 has sold over 1 million copies, whilst a sequel, Just Cause 2, released 4 years later also to positive reception. It has sold over 6 million copies as of September 2013.
We’ve reached out to Square Enix for comment – so far, no word back.
