Shall we just agree that the
Twitter and LinkedIn accounts of voice-actors are how the games
industry circulates new game announcements nowadays? The latest
unofficial outing is for EA's Army of Four, followup to Army of Two:
The Fortieth Day and apparently showcase for the vocal talents of Mr
Joe Flanigan of Los Angeles, California. You may know Flanigan from his work on shows such as Stargate: Atlantis and Dawson's Creek; this is his first videogame credit.

“Just signed on to do the
new Ao4 videogame for Electronic Arts,” tweeted Flanigan this
weekend: “Some splinter from Battlefield. Finally, my kids think I
am cool again.” EA hasn't said anything official about the game,
though late last year insiders hinted that it was in development at
the company's Montreal studio.
Flanigan, shortly after his
initial tweet, allowed that “I think I have [Battlefield and Ao4]
mixed up. Thank God my kids don't read Twitter.” Hopefully they
read Gamesradar: we reported last year that DICE may in fact be
stepping in to assist in bringing the new title to Frostbite 2. See,
Joe Flanigan's kids? Your old man knows more than he thinks he does.
