Avalanche Studios Christofer Sundberg has tweeted a teaser image of a game in development at the firm. You can have a look at it through the link. Last week, it was rumored that Avalanche was working on Just Cause 3 and Mad Max for next-gen, and if we were to guess, that screen looks rather Mad Max-ish to us. Then again, it could be anything. In 2010, God of War’s Cory Barlog was reportedly working on the Mad Max title at Avalanche, but as of last year, Barlog is now working at Crystal Dynamics.

Avalanche has put the kibosh on yesterday’s rumor that Just Cause 3 will be released in 2012. Furthermore, the firm’s Christofer Sundberg told Eurogamer that the studio is ”not releasing any game in 2012,” and the Xbox World report was “just a rumor.” Earlier this year, Avalanche said it has two titles in the works for 2013, and recently released Renegade Ops on consoles. The game launched digitally for PC today.

Just Cause 2 was released in the US yesterday, and to mark the occasion, Avalanche and Square released the final video in the Anatomy of a Stunt series.
In it, you get to see Rico Rodriguez’s signature take down move, which he apparently likes to call the “Joyride of Death”.
Total awesomeness ensues.
Game’s out in the UK tomorrow, and you can catch up on the reviews for it through here, via our nifty round-up.

A new video for Just Cause 2 has been released by Square and Eidos.
Posted below the break courtesy of GameTrailers, the movie shows you some nice male bonding over an arm-flexing man-shake reminiscent of the Predator film.
Oh, yeah – there’s loads of shooting too.
Eidos tweeted earlier that there’s a demo for the title coming, and more information on that is to be revealed soon.
Game’s out for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 March 23 and 26 in North America and Europe, respectively.

Parachuting, shooting, and parachute-shooting? Sounds like it’d make a decent popcorn flick to us. Adrian Askarieh thinks so too, which is why he recently acquired the rights for a Just Cause movie.
“Hitman was a very successful movie for Fox, and I wanted to find a similar project in terms of its genre, international appeal and ability to do for a price, but do it independently in order to maximize the creative and financial upside that a project like this could generate,” Askarieh told Variety.
Previously, Askarieh teamed up with Eidos to roll out the red carpet for Hitman and Kayne and Lynch’s silver screen debuts.

American McGee’s Grimm Volume 3 is starting to wind down, what with only two episodes left after this week’s offering of Sleeping Beauty.
In Grimm’s sordid version of the fairy tale, a socially awkward witch puts a kingdom to sleep for 100 years. This promises to be the longest episode yet.
Also, Just Cause has been added to the free-to-play list, but only until March 26.
That should get you pumped until Just Cause 2 comes out sometime this year.
GameTap’s offerings can be found here, and if you are chintzy and don’t wanna spend the cash on a subscription, just play the free ones.
