Whether it pleases you or angers you, EA has announced today that Army of Two will be getting a sequel in the form of The Devil's Cartel. Game Informer's next magazine cover is also dedicated to EA's announcement, as shown above.
The Devil's Cartel will be brought to you by Visceral Games, the same creators of Dead Space. From EA's press release, they explain that "players will find themselves on the deadly streets of Mexico as Alpha and Bravo, two operatives working for Tactical Worldwide Operations (T.W.O.), a PMC outfit that drops them in the middle of a drug war conflict for an assignment full of corruption and deceit. With the ability to unleash the power of ultimate destruction, players will need to work together as their objectives unravel, allegiances begin to blur and they face off against a ruthless opposition."
"We wanted to refresh the Army of Two franchise for a new generation of action gamers, and at the same time, stay true to the core concept that really made the first two games fan favorites," said Julian Beak, Executive Producer, Visceral Games. "With meaningful, seamless co-op gameplay at its core and explosive new tag-team features, gamers will have to work together tactically and strategically as they push through a city dominated by one of Mexico's deadliest drug cartels."
Army of Two will feature both online and couch co-op, something all games that offer co-op should feature. The game releases in March 2013, along with everything else.
