We revisited our studio and title portfolios from the perspective of stepping up our offering of online titles that we develop for the North American and the European market. We want to focus on creating new titles that align with our strategy, including ones that leverage new IP. The Just Cause franchise will remain our IP, and we are at work developing a new title in the franchise.
As a huge fan of the franchise who platinum'd 2, 3 and 4, I can't wait wait for a new game. The new game really needs to have co-op; that's really the next evolution for the franchise in my opinion. now we have consoles with CPUs powerful enough to handle the physics of two players causing chaos. Progression should be more like 3 than like 4; it was much better. Also they need to expand on the puzzle aspect of the "Solis Pro Tour" mode from 4. That mode was a lot of fun and made me go back and play the game even after I had gotten the platinum trophy. Hopefully the season pass content will be as good as the contents of season passes for 3 and 4.
I am psyched. I doubt we'll see anything about it during summer game fest, but just knowing for sure that they're making a new entry is enough for me.
