Pandemic Confirms Mercenaries 2

Pandemic Studios today announced Mercenaries 2: World in Flames, the sequel to its smash-hit sandbox shooter from early last year, Mercenaries. For the sequel, Pandemic has reconstructed its “playground of destruction” from the ground up for “next-gen technology”, though the developer is remaining tight-lipped about exactly what platforms the game will appear on.

While the original Mercenaries’ high-octane, go anywhere, do anything and blow the crap out of everything style was a hit with gamers, the whole experience was screaming to run on next-generation game systems,” explains Pandemic CEO Andrew Goldman. “And while we’re building on the core mercenary experience we created for the original, we’ve taken full advantage of next-gen technology to offer a more richly detailed, reactive, living world than gamers have ever seen before.
