The dude-bros of the Army of Two franchise will return early next year. During their annual summer showcase, EA Games revealed the next game in the Army of Two franchise – Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel.

What’s shocking about this announcement is that Visceral Games, the makers of Dead Space, will be developing the project, slated for a March 2013 launch for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

In Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel, players will find themselves on the deadly streets of Mexico as Alpha and Bravo, smack dab in the middle of a drug war conflict. Players will have to use their skills with firearms and tactics, as well as the power of the chest bump and fist bump to win the day.

“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: The Devil’s Cartel will launch in March 2013 for Xbox 360 and PS3.
