Interesting. I liked the first game. Never bothered with the second one and thought the franchise was dead.

What does he mean "Splinter from Battlefield"? Are EA slapping the Battlefield brand on everything now?

The next tweet is about getting his games mixed up so maybe he just thought shooter + EA = battlefield.

That's it, keep flooding the military shooter market. After all, it worked for guitar games...

I know, there market is bigger and more established, but I think there has to be a saturation point. Medal of Honor, Battlefield, Army of ____, that game from the CoD guys from Activision.

Well that's obvious. V_Ben also told me on Twitter that this is probably what Mercs Inc. became, so this has me very intrigued.

Seems like EA's GDC conference is going to have quite a few interesting games. Hopefully Mirror's Edge 2 is there........

the first one had some nice ideas, but was a buggy and glitchy mess and also it was a game from production hell, they cutted many things out of the game and you can really see it. it was a mess.

the second games was just boring and without the cool cgi videos from the first game.

It's good they didn't call it Army of Two 2. Sounds like Army of Tutu.

Since Visceral Los Angeles no longer exists, presumably it's being done entirely by Visceral Montreal.

He probably thinks it's a splinter from Battlefield since it runs on Frostbite 2, and admits he is probably confused here.

If this is the re-branded Mercs Inc project it might also have some substantial competitive multiplayer.

I hope it's a new Army of two game, those games are amazing absurd. Mercs 2 was great too for the same reason. It was a bit bugger though.

Reading his previous tweets, why would he have been in Sweden to sign the contract for an EA job if it wasn't DICE-related? Do they (EA) have that kind of offices in Malmö or Copenhagen?
