Four is the new two, people. It's not good enough anymore to let gamers pair up in their efforts to save the world from one threat or another; no, we won't be satisfied unless at LEAST four friends can get in on the action. Electronic Arts seems to recognize this, as the publisher's Montreal studio is reportedly working on another Army of Two game, called Army of Four.
The news comes from an unnamed EA insider speaking to Kotaku, yet another bit of leaked information to follow yesterday's revelations about Dragon Age and Dead Space. The tipster says that Army of Four will feature four-player co-op, and that it's being built on DICE's Battlefield 3-powering Frostbite 2 engine. There have apparently been a few setbacks during the rumored game's development, which may prompt EA to move some DICE team members over to the Montreal studio to lend a hand.
That is, of course, assuming all of this is true. Don't forget that nothing's been officially announced yet.
