Announced: Mercenaries 2: World in Flames for Next Gen Consoles.

I heart open world explosions. Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction, is a sandbox open world game (like GTA) but with a twist. You play a mercenary who works for anyone who can pay. I really enjoyed the title, and have been waiting patiently for a Mercs 2 to be announced (I hoped) during E3. Well with 6 days to go till E3, I was suprised to read this press release:

Electronic Entertainment Expo


LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 3, 2006–Pandemic Studios unveils Mercenaries 2: World in Flames(TM), the sequel to the best-selling original console IP of 2005, next week at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.

In Mercenaries 2, Pandemic has constructed a whole new “playground of destruction” from the ground up, fully stocked with the hottest vehicles and weapons. Set in a new and exotic hotspot, you can be your own boss in a wide-open world where there’s only one rule: everybody pays.

“While the original Mercenaries'(TM) 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,” explains 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.”

With the article came a very tiny logo:

I’m sure that in 5 day’s we could be seeing a trailer at the Sony Media Briefing, if not: 6 day’s at M$ Media Briefing.

I’ll keep you posted.
