Joe Flanigan, an actor some may recognize as Stargate: Atlantis' John Sheppard, has signed on with EA to "do the new AO4 video game," according to his Twitter account. Originally referring to the project as an offshoot of the Battlefield series, Flanigan quickly redacted that statement, thanking God that his children don't read Twitter.

Word around the rumor mill is that AO4 stands for Army of Four, and that it's a sequel to 2010's Army of Two: The 40th Day. That makes more sense than Artificial Orangutan 4 or Aquabat Opera 4, which were the first two things we thought of. We've reached out to EA regarding what the dealio, yo.

[Thanks, Jordan!]
