EA rumour du jour: Army of Four built on Frostbite 2

Kotaku’s gone live with another EA rumour, this one suggesting the next Army of Two game will contain four-way co-op.

As with the supposed Dragon Age multiplayer project reported yesterday, it’s being developed on DICE’s Frostbite 2 engine. There’s no other detail other than a caveat reminding that there’s been no official announcement.

If true, this would be the third game in the action series, following 2008’s Army of Two and 2010’s Army of Two: The 40th Day.

The games follow very muscly Tyson Rios and Elliot Salem as they murder people for money and blow stuff up. It’s developed for co-op from the ground-up.

EA’s announced nothing as yet about extending the series, but a 2012 instalment makes sense. EA Montreal developed both Army of Two and its sequel.
