"Just signed on to do the new AO4 video game for Electronic Arts," the tweet states. "Some splinter from Battlefield. Finally, my kids think I am cool again."
Although they are both military-themed shooters, Army of Two is not actually a Battlefield spin-off. A follow-up post on the same account acknowledged as much, saying, "Showing how distinctively uncool I am, I think I have those games mixed up."
A third Army of Two game was first hinted at last year with a pair of job listings to work on the franchise at the Montreal branch of Visceral Games. At the time, EA would say only that "Army of Two continues to be a very important franchise" for the publisher.
2008's original Army of Two focused on two-player cooperative action. Gamers could play together online as mercenary protagonists Salem and Rios, or take control of one of the mercs in single-player, with AI controlling the other character. Army of Two: The 40th Day followed up in early 2010 and is set during a fictional military attack on Shanghai.
