It has been revealed, via a forum post, that the multiplayer mod for Just Cause 3 has been halted indefinitely. Trix (real name Cameroon Foote) posted the update on the Just Cause Multiplayer forum, and is a post that is filled with both good news and bads news.
The bad news obviously being that the multiplayer mod is cancelled. But despite fans of Just Cause really looking forward to the mod, many of the fans are actually very understanding. Many fans are commenting stating that they are fine with the news (mainly because of the good news, but we’ll get to that), with the worst comment (as of writing) being “Sigh Well, I was really looking forward to JC3MP. But guess real life trumps this, thanks for the ~3500 hours of free entertainment though”.
Now to the good news. Trix, the lead developer of the multiplayer Just Cause mods, was approached by Avalanche Studios Sweden to join their team as a developer. Trix said in the post:
“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”
Trix added that the Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod will be maintained “where appropriate”. This means that new features will not be added, but things such as bug fixes and updates to maintain stability will continue to roll out. The post ends with a very heartfelt close.
“As a closing note, we’d like to thank our loyal fanbase for all the support over the years. While we know we haven’t always been the most communicative, our hearts have always been behind our mod(s) and their players. All of us remember the many wonderful moments we had in the beta tests and joining random servers well after release; on behalf of the team, thank you to all of the players, server owners, scripters, and you for everything. We couldn’t have done any of it without your ongoing support.”
I’m sure everyone here at Games Bulletin is in agreement with me when I congratulate Trix on his job offer, and thank all of the team involved in the mod for the work they did. It’s not often that mod creators get developer jobs, and I hope that Trix will bring great things in his future projects.
