This Teased Image Sure Looks Like Just Cause 3

You know what game was a lot of fun? Just Cause 2. But as delightful as it was, it had more than its share of flaws. So, you know what game will probably be really fun? Just Cause 3. And this image shared by Avalanche's CEO Christofer Sundberg on Instagram suuuure looks like a new Just Cause game.

Here's the full image:

That sure looks like a plane, and that guy sure looks like Rico Rodriguez.

Avalanche has several games in development at the moment; Kotaku's resident investigator Superannuation believes that one, code-named "Project Mamba," is likely a new Just Cause.

Sundberg recently tweeted another blurry image that also looked like a new Just Cause game, and this new airborne shot seems to reinforce that theory. His description of the image remains cryptic: "Is it a bird? Is it a plane? #yearoftheavalanche #avalanchestudios."

First of all: No, it's not a bird. Yes, it's a plane! Well, or a blimp or something. But is this a shot of Just Cause 3? Or some other Avalanche game that simply has a very similar look? And if it is a new Just Cause, does it mean that Just Cause 3 might take place somewhere with a desert? That'd be cool by me. We may not know yet, but it seems likely that we'll find out soon.

    Pretty sure it's not a plane - it looks more like the underside of the massive party air-ship which also featured in JC2.

    Man... I lost so many hours to JC2. Ultimately keen for this!

    Scor-Pi-O! Scor-Pi-O!

    Does that look like Rocketeer/WW2 style getup to anyone else??? Could we be in for a period piece JC game? Personally I'm down for that...

      Nah, I think it's just the sepia-toned screenshot that gives that impression :P

        I was thinking more along the lines of the flight jacket, the riding pants and the boots myself :P
        Then theres what looks to be the mechanical device on his waist? Possibly an early winding device for the cable? Is JC3 a prequel? Set way in the past? Or an unrelated game possibly?

          That could be a blimp in the background too. I want wingsuits dammit.

    One of my favorite games on PS3, so I'll happily get the sequel.

    I hope the next Just Cause has the environmental diversity of 2.

      Yeah. Just cause 2 had a lot of variety and each area looked great.

      The two images teased so far have been fairly dull in colour, I just hope they are showing the desert sections at the moment.

    I hope they know how cool and popular the Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod is shaping up to be and will properly implement massive multiplayer mode in the next game.

    Its not JC3, its something else

    i hope Just cause 3 is out soon, i already completed Just cause 2 100% 5 times over i need Just cause 3
