EA signs Mercenaries 2

On PS3 later this year.

Electronic Arts has signed on to publish Pandemic's upcoming Mercenaries 2: World in Flames worldwide.

Formerly a LucasArts property, Mercenaries 2 is expected to launch on PlayStation 3 later this year, and has been persistently linked with an Xbox 360 release too - although nothing's confirmed.

"Mercenaries 2: World in Flames will set the bar for explosive, open world action games in the next generation, and everyone at Pandemic is excited that fans will be able to get their hands on it later this year," said Pandemic CEO Andrew Goldman.

The original Mercenaries appeared on PS2 and Xbox to critical acclaim, combining brilliantly violent action with an open world setting.

We should have a Q&A with some of the parties involved later on today, so stick around for more.
