2015 will be Just Cause and Mad Max developer Avalanche Studios’ “biggest year” ever with “several surprises planned,” according to the developer.

“2015 is set to be the biggest year since the inception of Avalanche Studios more than a decade ago,” Avalanche Studios said in an e-mail sent to VideoGamer.

“Next year, players will be able to roam the lethal open-world wasteland of Mad Max. In addition, theHunter is on a record breaking streak. More than a million players have signed up for the world’s most realistic wildlife experience since the Steam introduction earlier this year, bringing the total number to over 4 million.

“Avalanche Studios also has several surprises planned for next year.”

Just Cause 3 is long rumored to be in development at the studio. Square Enix has a domain registered, and the LinkedIn profile of Avalanche Studios boss Christofer Sundberg lists an “unannounced sandbox action game” from Square Enix “scheduled for completion in 2015 for next generation console platforms.”

The only games developed by Avalanche under Square Enix have been Just Cause games. Top that off with the studio having said it was working on a “new installment in a very well-known game series” for Square Enix, and you’ve got the very obvious Just Cause 3.
