It's probably a safe assumption that Avalanche Studios is working on Just Cause 3 . But is this the first screenshot of the anticipated project…?

Avalanche co-founder Christofer Sundberg released to Kotaku this blurry teaser image, which is believed to be for one of the team's three unannounced projects. Apparently, it's some dude riding a motorcycle through a desert while he kicks an adversary into the sand.

This may indeed be something from a new next-generation Just Cause project, especially because we think we see a grappling hook in the character's left hand. And if it is a sequel, then this may be the first installment that doesn't feature a tropical setting of some kind. Then again, this could be a teaser pic for another of Avalanche's new games – dubbed "Project Mamba" – which is set to launch on next-gen systems and PC in 2014. It's hard to say right now, but it's always fun to speculate.

It's also fun to speculate on the potential quality of that image: Could that be something we'd see on a next-gen console? It's kinda hart to tell…
