Avalanche Studios has teased one of its unannounced titles by posting a snapshot of the game on Instagram.

The grainy image, posted by the studio's founder Christofer Sundberg, appears to show a shot of the protagonist hijacking a motorcycle, and reveals a dusty, canyon-like landscape.

"We're making awesome games at #avalanchestudios!" said Sundberg's caption for the image. "This year will be awesome! #yearoftheavalanche"

Unfortunately, there aren't any further hints as to what the game could be, although the developer is rumoured to be developing a Mad Max game and a new title in the Just Cause series.

This, quite frankly, could be either.

Avalanche is also known to be developing a game targeted at next-generation systems, after Sundberg revealed last year that the studio was "shipping back" current-gen devkits to make room for next-gen.

Could Avalanche's picture be the first shot of a next-gen game? Or has Ubisoft already beaten it to the punch?

I think they know everyone knows they're working on Just Cause 3 - and rightly so because they've not exactly been evasive about it. If this isn't Just Cause 3 I'll... well, I'm not going to eat any hats, but I'll be surprised.

What I'm curious about is their positioning of "year of the avalanche". It sounds like they're referring to the engine, and their Avalanche engine has been leagues ahead in rendering open worlds since 2006. I think they'll have a couple of games to show us at E3: one will be current gen only because they've been working on it for a while, and the other will be based on a new version of Avalanche and look ridiculous

Whether this screenshot is a current or next gen version of Just Cause 3.... anyone's guess. I'd say it's current gen because there's not much going on with the lighting and other flashy things that I don't know the names of.

I'd be concerned about the business case for another Just Case title on current gen, though. I got all the achievements on the first one at release but only rented the second and got bored. I can't say I'd be that bothered about Just Cause 3 on my Xbox 360.
