Riccitiello: "There will be a Mercenaries 3"

And even more, if he has his way.

Silvery-maned EA boss John Riccitiello has told investors he plans to make many more Mercenaries games, despite the recent sequel failing to win much critical praise.

"There will be a Mercenaries 3 and, if I have anything to do with it, there will be a Mercenaries 10," Riccitello told investors, as reported by GameSpot.

The reason being that Mercenaries 2 sold over 1.9 million copies around the world, so it's a commercial success on the same level as Tiger Woods PGA Tour '09 and Spore.

But developer Pandemic has been quite open about the possibility of a sequel to the open-world shooter for a while, telling us back in 2007 there were already plenty of ideas for a third Mercenaries game.
