Just Cause 2 Sells Well; Sequel, Movie Coming

Posted on December 14, 2011 AT 01:51pm

THE BUZZ: The action-packed, open-world adventure of Just Cause 2 has been a hit with gamers, ensuring not only a sequel, but also a potential movie.

Released earlier this year, Just Cause 2 has gone on to sell 3.5 million copies. In an article on the Hollywood Reporter, not only is it mentioned that “a third game is now in development”, but that work continues on a feature film based around the franchise.

According to the article, Bryan Edward Hill has been brought in to rewrite the script. Just Cause: Scorpion Rising will center around the hero of the original game, Rico Rodriguez.

EGM’s TAKE: The Just Cause series has always been one of those things that seemed like a lot of fun from the short time I played them, but which I just never had the chance to get into. For those out there who do play and love the games, glad to see that a third game will be coming along.
