Just Cause Mobile revealed at The Game Awards 2020, was initially promoted as a free-to-play, top-down action shooter offering both single-player and multiplayer modes. It was developed to bring the thrill and excitement of the Just Cause universe to mobile platforms. Despite the original release date set for 2021, several delays pushed the expected launch into 2023.

As per the game’s Google Play listing, which is still live at the time of publishing, Just Cause Mobile was set to feature a story campaign, a 30-person competitive multiplayer, and four-player cooperative missions.

The game was also expected to provide a unique movement system, leaning heavily on franchise staples like grapple guns, parachutes, and wing suits, echoing the explosive action and over-the-top stunts that fans of the Just Cause series have come to appreciate.

The cancellation of Just Cause Mobile signals a surprise move from Square Enix, and as fans and industry spectators await further announcements, the reasons behind the cancellation remain unclear.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. Currently stuck in WoW with high M+ keys, Tarkov, a bit of Gray Zone Warfare, Dota 2, and CS2. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC. If you need anything, feel free to contact me on X!
