Just Cause 2 modder is now an Avalanche employee. He created the popular Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod. Lead Developer Cameron Foote shared a blog post in which he revealed the news.
Foote got an offer from Avalanche to join its team to which he agreed. Foote promised that he would “bring many of the things you know and love from JC2-MP into future Avalanche experiences.”
It’s a great opportunity and we wish the best of luck to Foote. However, the bad news is that Just Cause 3 multiplayer mod is no longer in development.
Just Cause 3 multiplayer is cancelled, according to Cameron Foote.
Good and bad news often come in pairs, and this case is no exception; several months ago, I was approached with an offer I couldn’t refuse: to join Avalanche Studios Sweden as a developer so that I could work on projects present and future. As part of Avalanche, I’ll be able to bring many of the things you know and love from JC2-MP into future Avalanche experiences, while reaching heights that a mere mod couldn’t facilitate. Unfortunately, due to time constraints, neither I or the rest of the team can actively pursue development on JC3-MP; our lives are just too busy to allow for it right now.
We will still be maintaining JC2-MP where appropriate – while we’re not actively adding new features, we will fix bugs, maintain stability, and ensure that JC2-MP remains a quality experience for players present and future. We’re still searching for solutions to our most prevalent issues (including AMD compatibility without workarounds); hopefully, we’ll be able to make headway in the future.
There is good news though, modders known as Nanos are still working on their Just Cause 3 multiplayer mod. They posted on their official website to reassure the community.
