Well Looks like JC3 is finally close to being announced, I absolutely LOVED the first and second and dare I say it had more fun in Just Cause 2 than any other open world game (yes GTA V included)|

Could be a totally new IP but I doubt it!
Anyone else looking forward to this? What new features would you like? Co-op for me would be awesome
Just Cause 3

It would be the perfect game to show off next gen advances. I would imagine Avalanche could pull off some amazing stuff given when they managed in the last gen.
Some decent voice actors would be a start.

More interesting missions. It was fun as hell to fuck about in but the missions were tedious.

I loved JC2, one of my favorite games of the last few years, such a beautiful sandbox to dick around in.
I would like to see them borrow some of the stealth/rpg lite elements of Farcry3 for the next installment.

Count me as very interested. I enjoyed both Just Cause and Renegade Ops.

I'd like it to not merge together with every other open world action game out there by copying elements like stealth and RPG-lite.
I wouldn't mind them adding stealth elements however I think the controls/movement would have to be refined ALOT to make it work. The series doesn't really need it anyway!
Like others have said:
Would be my most wanted features

I think I'd be happy enough if they ditched the split between missions and fucking about, and just found a way to make the fucking about become the missions.
It'd be great to be tooling about, and then just have some crazy objectives appear. "Yeah, that'd be fun!" and then do that, and have it feed into whatever the overarching 'story' or metanarrative was. They've always done the factions thing, so it maybe wouldn't be too hard.
People could petition you for aid. "Hey - come help Bolo blow some shit up" vs. "Bolo is a tool, come help Generic Asian Man on his bid for domination".
It'd be nice if they made the entire game about the things most of us spent the majority of our time doing in their games. If I hijack an aircraft (just randomly, as I did A LOT in JC2) perhaps one of them has an important diplomat on board ("have you any idea who is _on_ that 'plane you just jacked?! Get them to blahblah and we'll pay you blah!") and if you can deliver them intact you get the reward.
It's a mission, but I didn't rock up to a point, press a button, and then have it effectively sub-sandbox me into a minigame.
Or they could just do what they've always done, and I'll make my own fun like I always do.

-save anywhere feature, more generous checkpointing
-stealth isn't really needed, but I would like a way to lose heat more quickly, or at least for it to accumulate more slowly. As it is, in jc2 I usually need to run away like a little girl several times before I'm able to complete a military base
-better movement controls. Yes, the grapple and parachute is awesome, but general moving around was cumbersome
