Steam Becomes Wal-Mart, Leaks Just Cause 4 Ahead of E3

Published: June 7, 2018 10:25 PM /



It looks like brick and mortar retailers aren't the only ones leaking games this E3 season. Valve's very own game distribution platform, Steam, has up a listing for Avalanche Studios' Just Cause 4.

This is most certainly a mistake, as Avalanche hasn't announced the game in any way as of this writing. A variety of the staff here at TechRaptor saw the listing in multiple spaces. Just Cause 4 appeared in the pop-up sales window upon starting up Steam, and also in the "Updates and Offers" section on the front page.

Upon clicking the listing, the front page does a refresh instead of taking you to the game's store page. After multiple refreshes, however, the Just Cause 4 tile is still there.

This news comes on top of today's earlier announcement, in which Avalanche revealed a new IP called Generation Zero. The studio is also working alongside iD Software on the sequel to Rage.

The Just Cause franchise has become a bit of a cult hit over the years, with fans falling in love with the open-world insanity the game has to offer. Some enthusiasts even went so far as to create multiplayer mods for the second and third titles, as the base experience is single-player only.

Like every year, E3 2018 is shaping up to be an absolute powerhouse. Much to our surprise, Hitman 2 has been officially announced after a leak of its existence. There are rumors of a Devil May Cry 5 revealRed Dead Redemption 2 pre-order details were leaked before being confirmed, and we are all but certain that Fallout 76 is an online survival game.
