Update: And here we are.
We’ve just been told that Just Cause 2 will launch in the third quarter for PC, PS3 and 360.
The free-roaming action titles is currently on a press tour.
Avalanche, the original’s developer, announced the sequel in January last year, claiming it’d hit in 2008. It didn’t, obviously.
The second game again features Rico Rodriquez as the protagonist, following the anti-hero on a quest to cause an awful lot of damage.
Watch for an official announcement soon. We’ve contacted Eidos for comment.
