Square Enix has announced that Just Cause: Mobile, a mobile spin-off game from the Just Cause universe, has been delayed to 2022. Just Cause: Mobile was originally scheduled to release this year for iOS and Android devices.
Via a tweet from the official Just Cause: Mobile account, it was announced that the game would be released later. Like many developers this year, the developer of Just Cause: Mobile has also had problems developing the game due to the pandemic.
In addition, the developer says the team will continue to provide regular updates through the game’s social media channels, so hopefully, we’ll learn more about the game soon. Just Cause: Mobile isn’t the first game to be delayed due to the pandemic, and it probably won’t be the last.
Just Cause: Mobile was originally announced at the Game Awards last year, and unlike the original single-player games, the mobile game will be completely free with co-op and PVP elements. For the first time in the series, players will not play as Rico Rodriguez but instead, build their own character.
The focus is entirely on the multiplayer experience in this game, as you can play up to 30 players against each other in the story campaign. Despite that, there are still many familiar elements in the game, such as grappling hooks and wingsuits, just like the many explosions and the world you can destroy.
Just Cause: Mobile is being developed by a new team within Square Enix that has not yet been given a real name. Avalanche Studios, who made the previous Just Cause games, is no longer working on the franchise but is working on a new co-op action game for Microsoft called Contraband.
