Mercenaries 2 confirmed

For next-gen.

Pandemic's confirmed speculation that it's working on a sequel to Mercenaries.

Called Mercenaries 2: World in Flames, it's due to be shown off at E3 in detail. For now, all we really know is that it's set in a different location to the first, PS2 and Xbox title, which saw the player violently picking sides in a struggle for bits of Korea.

"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," said 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."

So presumably it's hopping to PS3 and Xbox 360 then - although we'll have to wait until E3 to find out for sure.

In the meantime, Pandemic's dropping hints on its website.
