Rumor: Joe Flanigan “signed on to do” Army of Four

Stargate: Atlantis alumnus Joe Flanigan has tweeted that he has signed on to do a bit of voice acting in Army of Four for EA.

The first tweet says: “Just signed on to do the new AO4 video game for Electronic Arts. Some splinter from Battlefield. Finally, my kids think I am cool again.”

Then, apparently noticing his gaff that Army of Two and Battlefield are not really the same series, he tweeted: “Actually, showing how distinctively uncool I am, I think I have those games mixed up. Thankgod my kids don’t read twitter.”

Army of Four has been floating around the rumor mill since last winter, when Kotaku published a report stating the next Army of Two game will contain four-way co-op and was in development using DICE’s Frostbite 2 engine.

EA’s announced nothing as of yet about a third entry in the series being in development, but the firm is hosting its GameChangers event at GDC next week – so we may hear more about it then. Or not.

We took screens of the tweets in case EA asks the actor to remove them.

Thanks, AGB.
