EA has announced development of a brand new Mercenaries game, just a few hours after leaked details of Pandemic's "Mercenaries Inc." project suggested the series might be dead and buried.
EA Los Angeles will take the reins on the new project, for which no other details have been provided. EA has described "Mercs Inc." as a "working title" according to Kotaku.
"We are very excited to announce a new instalment in the popular Mercenaries series because it demonstrates our continued commitment to Pandemic's rich catalogue of intellectual properties," said EA bigwig Nick Earl. Oof.
