Just Cause 3 may try to bring mods to consoles at some point according to an interview Avalanche Studios game director Roland Lesterlin had with GameSpot.

Just Cause as a franchise has some hardcore modding communities and it’s part of the reason why even though its first two games might not have shipped in the best of conditions, they still hold a strong place in people’s hearts. In fact, as many as 500,000 people still consistently play Just Cause 2 every month.

Because of this, when asked if Just Cause 3 would go the Fallout 4 route and also try to bring their mods to the new generation of consoles, Lesterlin didn’t rule out the possibility.

“We’ve been wanting to do that stuff for a while,” he responded. “We’re not announcing anything there yet, but… we would want to support [mods] as much as possible.”

Hard to say for sure as Lesterlin was intentionally vague, but it sounds like something may be in the works. For more on Just Cause 3, check out my hands-on preview of the game from E3.

Just Cause 3 will drop December 1 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

Although Bethesda stole the show at E3 2015, it may have been a one-time affair according to Bethesda’s VP of marketing and PR Pete Hines in an interview with The Telegraph.

Hines talked about how this year “felt like the right time” for Bethesda to hop on stage and have a presser. After all, how often do they have as many as seven games on the docket to announce? Battlecry, Dishonored: Definitive Edition, Dishonored 2, DOOM, Fallout 4, Fallout Shelter, and The Elder Scrolls Legends is one heck of a line up.

“I don’t know if we’ll do one next year. I don’t know if we’ll do one again,” said Hines. “It felt like more than we could accomplish in a booth.”

Bethesda tends to take their time when it comes to what they publish, especially with properties like Fallout and Elder Scrolls, so the odds that the stars align and this many games could be on the horizon again from the company is indeed a longshot. It makes sense then that Bethesda is wary of making this an on-going tradition.

This isn’t to say they’ll never kick off E3 again, but at least for the foreseeable future, Bethesda is happy it seems to have had their moment in the sun. Now, time for them to get back to work on Elder Scrolls VI.
