2010's Just Cause 2 has become something of a surprise hit—intentionally campy from beginning to end, the entire game went for a distinctly B-movie-esque atmosphere. With Steam offers lowering the cost down to as little as $2.99, its sales have reached upwards of 6 million copies. This sudden increase of units sold led many to fear for Just Cause 3's future when a leak was released showcasing microtransactions.

However, Avalanche Studios' recent blog post announcing Just Cause 3 in an official capacity has put our worries to rest with a confirmation that it will be a fully-featured $60 release that won't nickle-and-dime players into oblivion. Of course, this doesn't mean that Avalanche will be dropping it post-release. Hit the jump for the full quote!

Overlooking Prison Island on Eryth Sea

Monolith Soft’s 2010 Japanese-role-playing-game (JRPG) Xenoblade Chronicles has one heck of a story. The acclaimed Wii game’s hundreds of hours of gameplay are loaded with twists and turns, just as the story of its publication outside Japan is a whole tale in itself.
