Developer Avalanche Studios announced at E3 that the upcoming game, Just Cause 4, will not include an official multiplayer mode. However, this is not really a surprise as previous games in the series were exclusively single-player titles. Of course, this exempts unofficial yet recognized mods that added a multiplayer option in the last two games.
Speaking to PCGamesN, creative director Francesco Antoloni confirmed the news saying that, “Just Cause 4 will not feature multiplayer.”
The hype over the possibility of Just Cause 4 having a multiplayer mode began when Cameron “Trix” Foote, a lead developer of the Just Cause 2 Multiplayer mod, joined Avalanche back in 2016.
“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,” Foote said when he joined the developer.
Just Cause 4 is scheduled to release December 4 via Steam for $60. Were you hoping to have an official multiplayer mode for Just Cause 4? Hopefully, modders will step up just as they did in previous games.
