Report: Army of Two 3 in the works, to be called Army of Four

Rumors are circulating that another sequel to EA's Army of Two is in the works. Apparently, the follow-up to Army of Two: The 40th Day is going to be running on the Frostbite 2 engine, and it's going to be taking the series' bromance from a twosome to a full-blown orgy of machismo masculinity and fist-bumps with four playable characters ass-grabbing their way across the battlefield.

Army of Four, as it's being called (seriously), is said to be in development by EA's Montreal studio, though Kotaku's source said that he expected that EA may have DICE help on the project now that Battlefield 3 is done, as apparently things weren't going well. We don't know if that means the game isn't coming together well, or if the developer is just having problems with the relatively new Frostbite 2 engine, but it's still a disheartening sign.

And that's all we know! Honest! We can speculate that the developer might try and expand the game's multiplayer component, as seems to be the trend with all of EA's properties, but that's based on absolutely nothing. Hopefully we find out more soon, though, because we're dying to find out how EA Montreal is going to animate four people high-fiving at once. Seriously, we bet there have been hours of meetings on that alone.

    Yeah, I started with AoT: Devil's Cartel with my twin and it was awesome so we hunted down the other 2 first ones and loved them. Very sad to see what happened to Elliot Salem, but if I get to play as him and my twin as Rios again... And add 2 more players to the field??? It will be a RIOT!!! While people are taking fire twin and I will be playing rock, paper, scissors!!! XD It would be epic to be able to switch off through characters (out of the 4) if you are playing one or two player mode. I'm dying to be Salem again, be even better if we could play a villain's POV (since the Devil's Cartel and all). amazing if we could get Rios, Salem, Alpha, and Bravo to be on the same team and be playable characters. The first time I saw Salem, I couldn't play as him and I was disappointed, until I got the first one and 40th day. The 40th day is probably my favorite because its so much easier to stab a guy, but nothing beats Rios and his heavy ass frame slapping someone to death by running into them! XD

    I really liked 40th Day so I'll be looking forward to this. Hopefully the series continues to improve.

    Definitely. The first one was terrible, but I loved the second one, and a four-player co-op would add kind of a Borderlands-style fun vibe reCAPTCHA: 'The Duchmp'? Isn't that what Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror thing's about this Sunday?

    How can there be a sequel if SPOILER You shot your partner at the end of 40th day? END SPOILER

    you also could not shoot him if you wanted to

    So the THIRD game of Army of TWO is called Army of FOUR. Sounds pretty confusing.

    Can we expect the prequel called Army of One? Army of Two/40th Day was really fun with local co-op. It's not often you get to play local co-op this gen.

    probablly going to finally rent army of two 40th day before the year is over and play with my little, I remember the demo being a lot of fun. :)

    If you get four people to high five at once, it'll be like that epic moment in the Venture Bros. when all the old guard get together to do the Venture V and epicness occurs.
