Just Cause creators tease new project with blurry shot of blurry men doing blurry violence

"We've got our publisher's PR crew here today. Maybe I should shake them up a little bit and leak something just for the fun of it," Avalanche founder Christofer Sundberg tweeted yesterday. Minutes later, he uploaded the instagram shot above saying "We're making awesome games at #avalanchestudios! This year will be awesome!"

Rumours of an Avalanche Mad Max project have been circulating for years, and a movie reboot starring Tom "Gotham's reckoning" Hardy is due next year.
