'Army of Four' Breaks Cover on Twitter

Following rumours originally outed back in December, Army of Two: The 40th Day follow-up, Army of Four has been alluded to once again, this time via the Twitter account of a voice actor who claims to be working on the game. If genuine, then EA might be developing the third game in the series, under the name Army of Four with 4-player co-op.
"Just signed on to do the new AO4 video game for Electronic Arts," reads the tweet from voice actor, Joe Flanigan. "Some splinter from Battlefield. Finally, my kids think I am cool again."
Flanigan later corrected his error, thinking that Army of Two was a Battlefield spin-off, with a follow-up tweet: "showing how distinctively uncool I am, I think I have those games mixed up."
Yes. Yes, you do.
News of a third Army of Two game first materialised back in April last year, followed by rumours in December that Army of Four could be utilising DICE's Frostbite 2.0 engine, which would certainly make a lot of sense. Will Eliot Salem and Tyson Rios be making a comeback with two new buddies in tow then? If what we've heard of Army of Four so far proves to be true, then that could well be the case. However, we'd suggest the usual pinch of salt for now.
