Castlevania Voice Actor Says Third Season Already in the Works

Season 2 of Netflix’s Castlevania series hasn’t even aired yet, but the third season has apparently been greenlit already nonetheless. Or, at the very least, is enough of a sure thing to already be in production.

Richard Armitage, who voices protagonist Trevor Belmont, informed Digital Spy that production on the third season will start soon.

“We’re about to record a third

” said Armitage. “The second season hasn’t been aired yet, but we’re about to do a third.”

Netflix hasn’t officially announced a third season for Castlevania, but a possible third season renewal wouldn’t be a total shock. Netflix renewed Castlevania for a second season the same day the series debuted. That second-season order was also for twice as many episodes as Season 1.

Just Cause 4 Leaked Again Ahead Of E3

Just Cause 4 has now leaked twice. An ad served through Steam (via Kotaku) shows promotional art with a call to pre-order. This is the second retailer listing hinting at the existence of the game, after Walmart spilled the beans on several games with placeholder pages for several unannounced games last month.

Clicking to pre-order reportedly bounced users back to the main Steam page, and the ad has seemingly been removed. We expect to see it announced at the showcase for Square Enix, the current publisher of the Just Cause series. That presentation will take place on Monday, June 11 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST (3 AM AET on June 12).

Just Cause 3 was released in 2015, and received a mixed reception from critics on GameSpot sister site Metacritic. In the GameSpot review, Mike Mahardy called it a “stunning display of cause and effect” thanks to its destructible environments and toolset.

The near-confirmation of Just Cause 4 gives further credence to the Walmart leak, which has already struck gold with more than one confirmation. The biggest surprise was Rage 2, which Bethesda playfully responded to in cheeky fashion. We also now know that a new Assassin’s Creed (named Odyssey) and Lego DC Super Villains were accurate as well.

Various others in the Walmart leak haven’t panned out yet, but may well in the future. Unconfirmed games include a new Splinter Cell, Borderlands 3, Gears of War 5, and Dragon Quest 2. Others seem less likely, like “Forza Horizons 5”–even though the name of the series is “Horizon” and it would be on its fourth game.

How Rocket League Helped Me Through One of the Hardest Times of My Life

Losing someone close to you can knock you down with devastating effect. It can feel like everything’s crumbling beneath your feet, as you struggle to deal with the knowledge that your last interactions with them were ultimately final.

I went through this experience in a turbulent October and November of 2017 after a close friend passed without warning. Soon after this two pets of mine from home also passed away. It was a one-two punch that sent me reeling, and left me in what was one of the worst emotional ruts of my life.

During this time my room felt more like a prison than anything else. From the outside, it was a quiet, peaceful little area filled with bits and bobs that could keep almost anyone occupied and content. For me, it was my chamber — my area for thought and reflection, and my incubator for thinking about all the opportunities of bonding that’d be missed following my mate’s passing.

Just Cause 4 Leaked on Steam

Just Cause 4 has seemingly leaked on Steam.

A promo/preorder ad for what looks to be the as-of-yet unannounced fourth entry in the franchise is currently up on Steam.

Clicking for details doesn’t work or reveal any additional information about the game. Instead, you just get redirected to the front page of the Steam store, so there’s currently not much to go on.

Last month Just Cause 4 was listed online by Walmart, alongside several other unannounced games like Gears of War 5 and a new Splinter Cell.
