EA is declining to comment on rumours that Mercenaries 2: World in Flames has slipped into 2008.

Yesterday, reports claimed that Pandemic's open-world action game would miss its expected launch this holiday season. EA has told us this is unconfirmed, but won't reveal whether the title will be out in time for Christmas.

Mercenaries 2: World in Flames is in development for PS3, 360, PS2 and PC. It will let you run riot around Venezuela and blow all sorts of things up, all in the pursuit of money.

There will be jump-in co-operative play - probably on all but PS2, and you'll be able to shoot down trees and foliage in case you don't carry a pen-knife with an axe on it.

The original Mercenaries game was released back in 2005 to favourable critical back-slapping. Pop over to our Mercenaries review to find out more.

Alternatively you can make your way over to our Mercenaries 2 gamepage to see how the new version is shaping up.
