Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios cofounder Christofer Sundberg has released (via Kotaku) a blurry teaser image believed to be for one of the studio's three unannounced projects. The image (below right) shows off a character riding a motorcycle through a desert scene while kicking an assailant into the dust.

The image may contain a reference to the Just Cause series, as the character's left hand looks to feature the series-famous grappling hook. If this game is indeed the rumored Just Cause 3, it would mark a departure from the first two game's tropical settings, though this image may not be representative of the entire game.

Avalanche has previously confirmed one of its unannounced games--Project Mamba--is in development for next-generation consoles and PC for a launch in 2014.

The studio is headquartered in Sweden and opened a New York City office in November 2011.

Avalanche is best known for its well-regarded open-world action franchise Just Cause, the most recent installment from which launched in March 2010. In September 2011, the company released Renegade Ops, a vehicular dual-stick shooter that received a favorable critical reception.
