Just Cause 2 modder Cameron Foote has joined series creator Avalanche Games as a developer.
Foote made a name for himself in the modding scene as the lead developer behind JC2-MP, a mod for Just Cause 2 that brought online multiplayer to the single-player sandbox shooter.
His work didn't go unnoticed by Avalanche, with the studio reaching out several months ago to see about bringing Foote into its Sweden office in an official capacity.
Over the weekend Foote revealed he's decided to take the job, although that means he'll no longer have time to work on the now shelved multiplayer mod for Just Cause 3.
"Several months ago, I was approached with an offer I couldn't refuse: to join Avalanche Studios Sweden as a developer so that I could work on projects present and future," wrote Foote on the JC-MP forums.
"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.
"Unfortunately, due to time constraints, neither I or the rest of the team can actively pursue development on JC3-MP."
Foote, however, has promised to maintain JC2-MP "where appropriate," and while no new features will be added in the future, the Just Cause Multiplayer team will do their best to ensure the mod remains a stable, bug free experience.
