Eidos Interactive confirmed recent rumblings on Wednesday, announcing that the sequel to their GTA Clone will arrive in 2008.

The sandbox action adventure is being developed by Avalanche Studios and promises improved stunts, new vehicles, and 1000 square kilometers of terrain to explore.

"Remember everything you loved about Just Cause, then take it to the next level: vehicles, stunts, weapons, freedom, grappling hook, action, everything," hyped the company in a presser. "The game world is even more incredible in Just Cause 2 and Rico has done a bit of growing up, so expect quite a few new surprises up his sleeves."
Just Cause 2 is scheduled for release on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC later this year.
