Christofer Sundberg, founder of Avalanche Studios and concept creator of Just Cause, is starting the rumor mill on his next game. Earlier today Sundberg tweeted a link to a gameplay photo, through Instagram no less, of a character riding a classic motorcycle with a sidecar kicking a dude. It's entirely reminiscent of the Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade motorcycle scene, but what sort of game it might be is a mystery.
Rumors have been floating around about Just Cause 3 being in development, but the LinkedIn profile where the rumor started lists the title ast planned for 2015. Hardly a game to be in fine working order like the one in Sundberg's Instagram. There's also the issue of the hashtag used in Sundberg's Tweet: "#yearoftheavalanche". The hashtag implies a game to be released this year, right?
Considering Avalanche Studios has only released four games since 2006, it makes you wonder what they've got in store for 2013 that makes this more their year than any other. It has been more than a year and a half since the release of Renegade Ops, over two years since Just Cause 2, so the definitely have to have something in the works. What's that game in the picture?
I don't have any answers. I do have one more question, though. There's a dude getting kicked in the picture. Where'd that dude come from? Was he flying next to the motorcycle? What is even going on?
